Neurobiology of Addiction Series, Psychostimulants
Psychostimulants, volume three in the Neurobiology of Psychostimulants Addiction series, explores the molecular and cellular systems in the brain that are responsible for psychostimulants addiction, including both direct/indirect sympathomimetics and nonsympathomimetics. This volume introduces readers to the history of psychostimulant use. Sections clearly define the neurobiological effects into three distinct steps: Binge/Intoxication Stage, Withdrawal/Negative Affect Stage, the Preoccupation/Anticipation Stage.
- Highlights recent advances in psychostimulant addiction
- Includes neurocircuitry, cellular and molecular neurobiological mechanisms of psychostimulant addiction
- Defines the abuse and addiction potentials of both direct/indirect sympathomimetics and nonsympathomimetics
Michel Le Moal, is Professor Emeritus of Neuroscience at the University of Bordeaux, France. He graduated in Medicine (1962) in Philosophy-Sociology and Natural Science and then Neurology (1967) and Psychiatry (1968). He completed a Doctoral in Science at the University of Bordeaux in 1974. In parallel with his academic life in Bordeaux, he spent time as an Associate Researcher and Professor at Caltech (1974) and at The Salk Institute and The Scripps Research Institute. At both institutions, he worked on dopamine neuron electrophysiology and investigated the roles of brain CRF and dopamine systems in behavior and drug addiction. He research interests concern behavior and adaptive processes, their biological foundations, and experimental psychopathology, a discipline he promoted. The concept of individual vulnerability to behavioral pathologies has been at the center of his working hypothesis. Dr. Le Moal has been the founder and director of several research laboratories at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale and finally the Magendie Institute for Neuroscience and Biological Psychiatry in Bordeaux, France. He is an elected Fellow of the French National Academy of Sciences.
