As a result of such findings, Gardner [1] hypothesized that some drug addicts may ‘have a defect in their ability to capture reward and pleasure from everyday experience’, and noted that this has been hypothesized by astute clinicians for more than 45 years [94, 95]. Gardner [1] has further noted that ‘if this be so, then our goals are really two-fold: first, to rescue addicts from the clutches of their addictions, and second, to restore their reward systems to a level of functionality that will enable them to “get off ” on the real world’.

Neuroanatomy and Neurochemistry of Brain Circuits Mediating Relapse By a variety of research stratagems – including combining intracerebral microinjections or anatomically discrete intracerebral lesions with one of the animal relapse models outlined above – it has been possible to discover the brain circuits underlying relapse to drug-seeking behavior triggered by the three classical relapse triggers. Relapse to drug-seeking behavior triggered by noncontingent reexposure to a drug is mediated by the dopaminergic medial forebrain bundle tract linking the ventral tegmental area with the nucleus accumbens [46, 156, 157, 161].

The drug-taking behavior extinguishes due to lack of reinforcement. The animal is then tested daily until highly stable day-to-day nonresponding is achieved. Then, the animal is exposed to relapse triggers (drug, stress, cues) and the amount of drug-seeking responding (on the manipulandum which has previously activated the infusion pump and delivered the addictive drug) is measured, such responses not being reinforced by the drug. A second relapse model is the so-called ‘reactivation’ model [45, 46, 158], which is built upon the conditioned place preference animal model of drug-seeking behavior (see above).
