Ed. by Bertha Madras et al.

Cold Spring Harbor Lab.


465 pages




For researchers and graduates students in neuroscience, Madras (Harvard Medical School) et al. discuss the cell and molecular biology of the brain and its connection to drug addiction. The 23 chapters cover genetics, development and drug abuse, cell biology and pharmacology, synaptic plasticity and addiction, and the systems analysis of drug abuse. Topics cover brain imaging, endorphins, neurotoxic effects, transporter structure and function, long-term memory, molecular mechanisms, genomics and proteomics, and specific drugs such as nicotine, opioids, marijuana, cocaine, and alcohol. The book is based on a course given at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in 2001, 2003, and 2005. Contributors are neuroscientists from the US and Canada.
