Cognitive Training May Protect Against Drug Addiction


A study with mice showed that spending time in a stimulating learning environment may prevent drug addiction.

In the study, mice who were not intellectually challenged, were eager to return to their chambers where they had been injected with cocaine for weeks. Those with cognitive training showed lessl preference for the chamber where they had been given the drug.

"Our data are exciting because they suggest that positive learning experiences, through education or play in a structured environment, could sculpt and develop brain circuits to build resilience in at-risk individuals," says researcher Linda Wilbrecht.
