Hello all,

 

In this update, I thought I’d finally disclose the findings of my research. While much remains unknown about mechanisms in the brain, certain systems— such as those that process opioids— have been explored in numerous contexts. Unfortunately, there is not enough evidence to conclusively determine whether the types of bonds drugs form in the brain influence their addictiveness. However, several studies allude to a potential correlation between drug addictiveness and intermolecular bonds in the brain. If further studies corroborate such a correlation, then our medical understanding of addiction could be greatly improved.
