Greenspan, prof., University of California San Diego, SAD Sažetak projekta: Addiction to drugs is a brain disease characterized by changes in the brain functioning caused by repeated drug taking. Repeated drug taking leads to neuroadaptations which over time affect neural networks and change behavior.
