This feed focuses mechanisms underlying addiction and addictive behaviour including heroin and opium dependence, alcohol intoxication, gambling, and tobacco addiction.

Amygdala and Midbrain Dopamine

The midbrain dopamine system is widely studied for its involvement in emotional and motivational behavior. Some of these neurons receive information from the amygdala and project throughout the cortex. When the circuit and transmission of dopamine is disrupted symptoms may present. Here is the latest research on the amygdala and midbrain dopamine.

Attention Disorders

Attention is involved in all cognitive activities, and attention disorders are reported in patients with various neurological diseases. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to attention disorders.

Basal Forebrain & Food Avoidance

Neurons in the basal forebrain play specific roles in regulating feeding. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to the basal forebrain and food avoidance.

Basal Forebrain- Circuits

Basal forebrain is a region in the brain important for production of acetylcholine and is the major cholinergic output of the CNS. Discover the latest research on circuits in the basal forebrain here.

Brain Circuits in Emotional Learning

The neuronal circuits within the cortico-limbic brain regions form networks that mediate emotional behavior. Areas specific to emotional learning include the basal amygdala and sublenticular extended amygdala region along with a supplemental motor area. Discover the latest research on brain circuits in emotional learning here.

Collision Avoidance Behaviors

This feed focuses on collision avoidance behaviors including guiding locomotion, obstacle avoidance, and steering behaviour. Here is the latest research in this domain.

Deep Brain Stimulation

Deep Brain Stimulation is a neurosurgical procedure that uses a neurostimulator to stimulate specific regions of the brain for treatment of movement disorders. Here is the latest research.

Development of Motivated Behavior

This feed focuses on neurocognitive development of motivated behaviour with focus on intrinsic drive and the reward system. Here is the latest research.

Dopamine & Behavior

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter and a hormone commonly associated with the brain's pleasure and reward system. Here is the latest research on its role in affecting and guiding human behaviour.
