What do you think? Should we get started on that motivational research, or not?

Motivation and addiction l.jpg
Motivation and Addiction motivational research, or not?

  • Acute Drug Effects

    • reward

  • ChronicDrug Effects

    • plasticity/neuroadaptations

      • tolerance

      • physical dependence

      • sensitization

    • Is there evidence for motivational change in animal models of addiction?


Slide5 l.jpg

Reward and Addiction motivational research, or not?

  • Reward mediated by specific neural circuits

    • addictive drugs directly stimulate reward circuits

    • reward transmitters: dopamine, endogenous opioids, serotonin, endocannabinoids

From NIDA


Slide6 l.jpg

Reward and Addiction motivational research, or not?

  • Reward does not explain addiction

    • pleasurable effects cannot account for compulsive drug seeking

    • majority of users do not become addicts

reward contributes to drug use

reward ≠ addiction


Slide7 l.jpg

Plasticity / Neuroadaptation motivational research, or not?

  • Paradigm shift: changes in response to chronic drug use important to addiction

    • neuroadaptations contribute to addiction by modifying motivational effects of drugs

      • modify positive and negative reinforcement

    • tolerance

    • physical dependence

    • sensitization


Slide8 l.jpg

Tolerance motivational research, or not?

  • Decrease in an effect following chronic use

tolerance to the

analgesic effect

of morphine in rats:

Peterson and Trujillo

  • addicts may take increasing amounts of drug due to decreases in desired effects or decreases in side-effects


Slide9 l.jpg

Tolerance and Addiction motivational research, or not?

  • Tolerance does not explain addiction

    • addiction can occur in absence of tolerance

    • tolerance often seen in absence of addiction

    • tolerance often follows, rather than precedes addiction

tolerance contributes to drug use

tolerance ≠ addiction


Slide10 l.jpg

Physical Dependence motivational research, or not?

  • Change in functioning following chronic use

    • further drug is needed to avoid withdrawal syndrome

naloxone-precipitated

morphine withdrawal

in rats:

Trujillo and Akil

  • negative reinforcement: addicts take drugs to avoid withdrawal


Slide11 l.jpg

Physical Dependence and Addiction motivational research, or not?

  • Physical dependence does not explain addiction

    • addiction can occur in absence of physical dependence

    • physical dependence often occurs in absence of addiction

    • symptomsdon’t explainintense desire for drug

    • relapse in addicts often occurs long after symptoms of withdrawal subside

physical dependence contributes to drug use

physical dependence ≠ addiction


Slide12 l.jpg

Sensitization motivational research, or not?

  • Increase in an effect following chronic use

sensitization to the

locomotor stimulant effect

of morphine in rats:

Ruzek and Trujillo

  • reward sensitization (increased liking)

  • incentive-sensitization (increased wanting)

    • may be responsible for craving


Slide13 l.jpg

Sensitization and Addiction motivational research, or not?

  • Does sensitization explain addiction?

    • hypothesized that repeated drug use leads to increased desire for drug

    • craving may develop via sensitization

    • sensitization well-studied in animal models

      • relevance to human addiction presently unclear

sensitization contributes to drug use

sensitization ≠ addiction?


Glutamate involved in neuroadapations l.jpg
Glutamate Involved in Neuroadapations motivational research, or not?

Sensitization

Tolerance

Physical

Dependence

Glutamate antagonists slowly reverse neuroadaptations l.jpg
Glutamate Antagonists Slowly Reverse Neuroadaptations motivational research, or not?

Peterson and Trujillo


Escalation in self administration with long access l.jpg
Escalation in Self-Administration with Long-Access motivational research, or not?

  • Ahmed & Koob, Science (1998)

    • long-access increases cocaine self-administration (also heroin)

Long

(6hr/day)

Short

(1hr/day)

Effort


Addiction like changes in self administration with long access l.jpg
“Addiction-Like” Changes in Self-Administration with Long-Access

  • Deroche-Gamonet et al, Science (2004)

  • Vanderschuren & Everitt, Science (2004)

    • long-term cocaine self-administration produces motivational change (in some rats)

Resistance

to Punishment

Persistence

Effort


Questions l.jpg
Questions Long-Access

  • What motivational mechanisms are changed?

    • positive reinforcement; negative reinforcement; incentive salience, others?

  • What are the neural substrates of the changes?

  • Can the changes be reversed?


Summary l.jpg
Summary Long-Access

  • Reward important in drug abuse and addiction

  • Plasticity/Neuroadaptation important in drug abuse and addiction

  • Plasticity/Neuroadaptation is reversible

  • Animal studies more closely modeling addiction

    • motivational changes seen with long-term use

A better understanding of motivational changes in addiction should lead to better treatment
