Drugs acting on reward and punishment systems
This chapter describes drugs that exert major actions on reward and punishment systems and are all drugs of dependence. Some have potent effects on pain systems and are of therapeutic importance (narcotic analgesics), but all are also used as recreational agents because of their rewarding properties. Antidepressant drugs and drugs which induce depression also affect reward and punishment systems.
