Brain Research in Addiction, Volume 235, the latest volume in this groundbreaking series on addiction, presents the neurobiological, pathological, cognitive and evolutionary aspects of addiction, with new chapters covering the Neurobiology of drug intake escalation, the Role of the orexinergic system in reward, Mental time travel and addictive behaviors, An evolutionary perspective on addiction- Addiction is the price we pay for innovation and adaptability, and how Cocaine exposure affects object-place recognition memory in non-human primates.

Chapters in this serial are presented by leading researchers from North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, who present addiction research from the bottom up, including how addiction evolved, basic research on animal models, and the psychiatric, psychological and cognitive characteristics of addictive behaviors in humans.

Key Features

  • Presents chapters written by global leaders in research on brain research and its relation to addiction
  • Provides an interdisciplinary approach that will be of interest to many professionals
  • Includes sections on the evolution of addiction, the effects of substance use on primate cognition, and addictive behaviors in humans


Pharmacologists, basic neuroscience researchers, clinical researchers, cognitive neuroscience researchers, and clinicians working in addiction will all gain from this volume

About the Serial Volume Editors

Tanya Calvey Serial Volume Editor

Dr. Tanya Calvey completed a science undergraduate majoring in anatomy and physiology following which, she completed an honour’s in human biology and evolution. Her PhD thesis, completed in 2015, was on mammalian brain evolution where she analysed the cholinergic, catecholaminergic, serotonergic and orexinergic neural systems in 13 mammalian species. This research was published in the Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy. All of her formal training took place at the University of the Witwatersrand where she is now a lecturer in the School of Anatomical Sciences. Tanya now conducts clinical research on addiction, the comorbid psychiatric disorders and neuropsychopharmacology. This research is funded by the Medical Research Council of South Africa. Tanya is also actively involved in developing neuroscience research in Africa. She is the Secretary for the Southern African Neuroscience Society and the co-founder of the Wits Cortex Club.

William Daniels Serial Volume Editor

Willie Daniels obtained his PhD degree from the University of Stellenbosch and completed postdoctoral studies at the University of Texas in San Antonio. He was also a recipient of a Commonwealth Research Fellowship and subsequently spent time at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Hinxton, Cambridgeshire, UK. Willie is currently the Head of the School of Physiology at the University of the Witwatersrand. Previously he held positions at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, South Africa (Dean and Head of School of Laboratory Medicine and Medical Sciences) and before that he headed the Division of Medical Physiology at the University of Stellenbosch. His main research thrust entails the use of animal models to study the pathophysiology of neurological and psychiatric diseases. He has published more than 85 papers in renowned journals on addiction, neurodegenerative disorders (Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease), epilepsy, stress and anxiety-related disorders and HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders. He has an H-index of 24 and an i10-index of 41 (Google Scholar). Willie has served on a number of professional societies including the Society of Neuroscientists of Africa (SONA) as Secretary-General, the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) as International Affairs Committee member, and the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) as Council Member.
