HOW DRUGS AFFECT YOUR BRAIN?

Drugs alter important brain areas that are needed for vital functions, how do they do ?.

It penetrate our system and interfere with communication how neurons normally send, they receive and they process the information.

Some drugs, such as marijuana and heroin, can activate neurons because their structure chemical mimics that of a natural neurotransmitter, but other drugs, such as amphetamines or cocaine, can cause neurons to release abnormally large amounts of neurotransmitters and this disrupts channels communication.

The most sought drug effect, as you know, is the effect of pleasure, How does this work?

The drugs attack the brain’s reward system, flooding the circuit with dopamine (neurotransmitter found in brain regions that regulate the movement, emotion, motivation and feelings of pleasure). When activated at normal levels, this reward our natural behaviors. However, overstimulation produces euphoric effects.

Despite knowing its serious effects on health, are still consuming why?

Our brains are prepared to ensure that We repeat the vital activities associated with pleasure or reward. Whenever this reward circuit is activated, the brain notes that something important is happening.
