Addiction: Neurological Basis

Dr. Peter Kalivas, Director of the Department of Neurosciences at MUSC, discusses his research on the neurological basis for addiction. He provides an overview of how lab rats and mice are used to observe changes in the brain as a result of addiction to drugs such as heroin and cocaine. Dr. Kalivas goes on to explain the neurological reason for why drug use can easily become such an incredibly difficult habit to break. Dr. Kalivas concludes this podcast by discussing how stress can factor into drug-seeking behavior and drug addiction.
