New Brain Research Helps Explain Drug Addiction

Fascinating Video about the role of dopamine in creating cravings to which we cannot say ‘no’.

We found a fascinating Video by Dr. Nora Volkow which explains the role dopamine has in creating a craving for a drug of choice. As we all know “craving” is the core reason why we simply don’t just stop “taking our poison”.
You can see the Video on the Big Think web site.
