Michigan State University (MSU) scientists recently discovered a molecular pathway in the brain prompted by cocaine dependency that could supply a target for treatments to prevent or repeal addiction to the drug.
MSU's neuroscientist A.J. Robison informs that gaining insight into what occurs molecularly to this brain pathway during long-term exposure to drugs might incite understanding into how addiction ensues.
