A new animal model of temperament reveals why some brains gravitate towards addiction. Read More
I would rather see this study done on humans. I just don't get how we can compare the human brain to those of rats? I don't believe that addiction is a disease, and I think that if people truly want to they can stop any substance. Think about the reasons people are getting high, maybe to not go through withdrawal, but often the number one reason is they are doing it because it makes them happy. I don't think we should tell people they are addicted, and if it is a "disease" then there is no true cure, but people still stop drinking and using drugs everyday on their own. Very interesting topic however.
