Using an innovative, translational approach between the work of experimental scientists and clinical practitioners, the authors and editors of this book addresses why current understanding of how and why addiction treatment works remains modest. Bridging gaps in understanding, this text shares critical insights into predicting how people will react to addiction treatment. BrainHealth researcher Dr. Filbey served as an editor and co-authored chapter 2, "Fundamentals of Addiction Neuroscience;" chapter 7, "New Approaches to Treating Cannabis Dependence: From Neuroscience to Practice;" and chapter 17, "How to Practically Apply Lessons Learned From Translational Neuroscience to Intervention Development: Ideas for the Road Ahead."
