MinnPost: Research May Identify Relapse Trigger in Human Brain

UMN researchers identified a cell group in the brain associated with relapse behavior. The finding could help researchers target and develop an intervention for recovering addicts to help them remain drug-free. The research focused on opioid addiction. Mark Thomas, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Neuroscience, discusses the research in a Q&A with MinnPost.UMN researchers identified a cell group in the brain associated with relapse behavior.
