New findings published in Biological Psychiatry by researchers with the Texas A&M College of Medicine may lay the foundation in stopping alcoholics from wanting another drink. Jun Wang, M.D., Ph.D., and his team found D2 neurons (neurons in the brain that tell you to wait, stop, or do nothing) can curb addictive behaviors when they are activated and manipulated. These findings provide insight into another mechanism underlying the complicated disease we call alcoholism.
