    The Effects of Drugs on the Brain. Article written by Chloe Nicosia. The human body’s most complex organ is the brain which acts as the center of all human activity. The brain is made up of different parts that work together to regulate the body’s basic functions. Different parts of the brain perform different functions and drugs can alter. The Brain Facts Book. Access Brain Facts, a primer on the brain and nervous system, published by the Society for Neuroscience.

    The Addictive Brain by Professor Thad A. Polk is an excellent look into the chemical and behavior causes of addiction. Polk address the many reasons people become addicts. He explains how the brain gets addicted to certain drugs, the origins and composition of addictive substances, and how they mimic the natural endorphins and neurotransmitters /5. The Effects of Drug Abuse on the Human Nervous System presents objective, state-of-the-art information on the impact of drug abuse on the human nervous system, with each chapter offering a specific focus on nicotine, alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, MDMA, sedative-hypnotics, and designer drugs. Other chapters provide a context for.

    Addictive drugs and behaviors provide a shortcut, flooding the brain with dopamine and other neurotransmitters. Our brains do not have an easy way to withstand the onslaught. Addictive drugs, for example, can release two to 10 times the amount of dopamine that natural rewards do, and they do it more quickly and more reliably. In this book you will explore the brain and see what happens when drugs affect its functions. Filled with an array of useful definitions and amazing historic discoveries about the nervous system, this book will bring you up to speed on the brain/behavior relationship, basic neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and the mechanistic actions of mood-altering drugs, including alcohol, marijuana.

The book provides a detailed overview of the pathophysiology of the disease. In the past four decades, advances in one's understanding of the molecular basis of brain functioning have enabled the investigation and the development of psychoactive substances and neurotransmitter theory and the production of novel psychoactive drugs have expanded almost in parallel.

The rate of these advances is now accelerating. DRUGS OF AbUSe TARGeT THe bRAINS PLeASURe CeNTeR. These brain circuits are important for natural rewards such as food, music, and sex.

Drugs and the Developing Brain is designed for all students, putting it in the category of universal prevention efforts (also known as primary prevention). Drugs make people feel good, which is why some people keep taking them over and over again.

But over time, drugs change the brain’s wiring and function. The drugs become less pleasurable and other areas involved in judgment, decision making, learning, memory, and control over behavior are also affected.

How Science Has Revolutionized the Understanding of Drug Addiction For much of the past century, scientists studying drugs and drug use labored in the shadows of powerful myths and misconceptions about the nature of addiction.

When scientists began to study addictive behavior in the s, people addicted to drugs were thought to be morally flawed and lacking in willpower.
