Neuroimaging in addiction

Abstract

Reviews the book, Neuroimaging in Addiction edited by B. Adinoff and E. A. Stein (see record 2011-27830-000). The book highlights latest advances in addiction research as garnered from human neuroimaging studies. Rather than focusing on a specific substance of abuse, the book takes a conceptual approach and highlights the shared neurobiology of addictive behaviors, including non chemical addictions like gambling. As a whole the book is cohesive and comprehensive, with little to no redundancy across chapters. This timely book is a superb summary of how current advances in neuroimaging have informed our understanding of addiction. This book is a valuable resource for researchers interested in addiction research and, to a lesser extent, for clinicians.
