    摘要:Addiction is chronic debiliating disorder of the brain, affecting brain circuits involved in motivation, emotion and cognition. Whereas early research particularly focused on cognitve alterations in the disorder, advances in neuroimaging methods allowed to map disruptions in the brain circuitry underlying motivation and emotion. The talk will provide an overview on recent findings on brain-based markers in humans that have been associated with the development and maintenance of substance-use disorders and behavioral addictions. Given that the currently availiable treatment strategies for these disorders are of limited efficacy the talk will discuss the perils and promises of innovative treatment approaches rooted in basic neuroscience, particularly the neurohormone oxytocin and real-time fMRI neurofeedback training.
