Through interdisciplinary collaboration, researchers at the University of Copenhagen have created a model of the way the brain releases dopamine. This model will be an important tool in helping scientists better understand how humans learn and how the brain perceives reward. Because of dopamine’s involvement in these activities, the researchers hope that the model can assist in further understanding drug and alcohol addiction and necessary treatment and rehabilitation options.
