Slide Show: The Brain Scans of Addiction, Unscrambled

“These slides are meant as a primer on some of the biggest stories to have emerged in addiction neuroimaging, and the insights they give. Of course, these examples are only a thin sliver of the available science—and scientists are still grappling with addiction’s overwhelming complexity. Without dismissing other relevant brain systems or equally important socio-cultural and environmental influences, our focus here is the striatum: a set of structures heavily involved in reward, motivation, habit formation—and the brain’s dopamine system.”
