Cognition and Addiction: A Researcher’s Guide from Mechanisms Towards Interventions provides researchers with a guide to recent cognitive neuroscience advances in addiction theory, phenotyping, treatments and new vistas, including both substance and behavioral addictions. This book focuses on “what to know” and “how to apply” information, prioritizing novel principles and delineating cutting-edge assessment, phenotyping and treatment tools. Written by world renowned researcher Antonio Verdejo-Garcia, this resource will become a go-to guide for researchers in the field of cognitive neuroscience and addiction.

Antonio Verdejo-García has a PhD in Psychology (Addiction Neuropsychology, University of Granada, 2006) and a Masters in Psychological and Biomedical Aspect of Health and Illness (University of Granada, 2002). After his PhD, he continued specialised training in addiction neuroscience in highly prestigious research centres: Johns Hopkins Medical Institute (Neurology), IMIM-Hospital del Mar (Pharmacology) and the University of Cambridge (Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute). Currently, Antonio Verdejo-García is an Australian Medical Research Future Fund Fellow and holds a Full Professor–Research appointment at the Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health (Monash University), where he is the Deputy Lead of the Addiction and Mental Health Program. He also holds honorary appointments at Turning Point, Australia’s leading national addiction treatment and research centre, and the University of Granada, and he is the Chair of the Neuroscience Interest Group of the International Society of Addiction Medicine. Professor Verdejo-García has led numerous studies on the cognitive and neural substrates of substance and behavioural addictions, and new cognitive training and remediation interventions for treating substance use disorders. He is internationally recognised as an expert in this field, as evinced by several international Editorial Board positions including top-ranked addiction journals. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed articles, and his work has attracted over 10,000 citations and has been translated into clinical trials of neurocognitive interventions and policy recommendations regarding application of neuroscience principles for the prevention and treatment of addictions.
