Overview

Biological Research on Addiction examines the neurobiological mechanisms of drug use and drug addiction, describing how the brain responds to addictive substances as well as how it is affected by drugs of abuse. The book's four main sections examine behavioral and molecular biology; neuroscience; genetics; and neuroimaging and neuropharmacology as they relate to the addictive process.

This volume is especially effective in presenting current knowledge on the key neurobiological and genetic elements in an individual’s susceptibility to drug dependence, as well as the processes by which some individuals proceed from casual drug use to drug dependence.

Biological Research on Addiction is one of three volumes comprising the 2,500-page series, Comprehensive Addictive Behaviors and Disorders. This series provides the most complete collection of current knowledge on addictive behaviors and disorders to date. In short, it is the definitive reference work on addictions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book considers the neurobiological mechanisms of drug use and drug addiction as well as the animal models developed to gain this knowledge…This volume provides an in-depth, detailed review of the wide range of literature on the key neurobiological and genetic elements involved in the development of addictions. This is an exceptional comprehensive reference." Rating: 4 Stars—Doody.com, January 24, 2014 "Miller aims to improve the lives of addicts and their families through a comprehensive and detailed understanding of the addictive process, while providing a science-based approach to the study, prevention and treatment of addictions… It targets advanced undergraduates, graduates, and postdoc students, professors, researchers, clinicians, and policymakers."—Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Easton, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: The second volume of a three-volume reference, this book covers key neurobiological and genetic elements in addictive disorders.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a basic understanding of the neurobiological and genetic elements lending susceptibility to use, abuse, and dependence. The book considers the neurobiological mechanisms of drug use and drug addiction as well as the animal models developed to gain this knowledge.
Audience: The audience consists of readers familiar with both clinical and preclinical research in addiction, which includes individuals at all educational and clinical levels as well as those involved in public policy related to addictive disorders. The book can also serve as a valuable aid to instructors and students.
Features: The book's four sections cover preclinical animal models, neuroscience, genetics, and neuropharmacology and imaging as they relate to the addictive process. These sections look at how the focus has shifted toward a biological model to explain the development and course of use, abuse, and dependence through advances in technology, the development of animal models, the search for pharmacological treatments, and the growth in the field of genomics.
Assessment: This volume provides an in-depth, detailed review of the wide range of literature on the key neurobiological and genetic elements involved in the development of addictions. This is an exceptional comprehensive reference.
