"This book will provide readers with a contemporary overview of current research on nicotine neurobiology and its role in tobacco dependence as well as its potential therapeutic effects. The book is written by leaders in this field and will prove valuable for those who are developing their own research programs and those who want to obtain a greater understanding of the problematic and therapeutic workings of this molecule in the human brain."
