After exploring advances in voltammetry and enzyme-linked biosensors for measuring glutamate, the publication discusses the theoretical heritage and result of neuroimaging stories relating to neuronal networks which are activated by way of drug-specific cues. It then describes smooth genetic ways to control objective proteins that effect addictive behavior.
