Although cognitive behavioural therapy is a fairly successful treatment for cocaine addiction, only 30% of patients manage to abstain from cocaine use after treatment. A better understanding of the neural mechanisms involved in cocaine abuse and dependence could allow us to identify new treatment targets. Anne Marije Kaag investigates the role the amygdala and frontostriatal cortex play in these mechanisms.
