Abstract

Substance abuse is a significant social and economic burden upon Australian societies and on societies around the world. Treatment remains problematic due to the multi-layer nature of the disease, difficulties with treatment compliance and less than ideal treatment regimes. The present study aims to improve treatments for alcohol and drug abuse using pre-clinical models to identify and characterize a new brain system implicated in drug-seeking.
