Importance Recent research on addiction-related memory processes suggests that protracted extinction training following brief cue-elicited memory retrieval (ie, retrieval-extinction [R-E] training) can attenuate/eradicate the ability of cues to elicit learned behaviors. One study reported that cue-elicited craving among detoxified heroin addicts was substantially attenuated following R-E training and through 6-month follow-up. Objective To build on these impressive findings by examining whether… Expand
Does craving for cocaine mediate cocaine use? Analysis of a randomized controlled pilot trial of memory-focused cognitive therapy
Cocaine use disorder (CUD) is a debilitating psychopathology, with no recommended medication therapy or specific psychological intervention. Memory-focused cognitive therapy (MFCT) is a novelExpand
Detrimental Effects of a Retrieval-Extinction Procedure on Nicotine Seeking, but Not Cocaine Seeking
TLDR
For nicotine seeking, the retrieval group exhibited resistance to extinction, an effect that persisted on the spontaneous recovery test, and indicates that retrieval-extinction procedures can be detrimental to nicotine seeking. Expand
Long-term Behavioural Rewriting of Maladaptive Drinking Memories via Reconsolidation-Update Mechanisms
TLDR
Greater long-term reductions in drinking were found when counterconditioning was conducted following retrieval (with and without PE), despite a lack of short-term group differences in motivational responding to acute alcohol. Expand
Long-term behavioural rewriting of maladaptive drinking memories via reconsolidation-update mechanisms.
TLDR
Greater long-term reductions in drinking were found when counterconditioning was conducted following retrieval, despite a lack of short-term group differences in motivational responding to acute alcohol. Expand
Memory Retrieval-Extinction Combined With Virtual Reality Reducing Drug Craving for Methamphetamine: Study Protocol for a Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
This innovative non-pharmacological intervention targeting drug-associated memories may provide significant clinical implications for reducing relapse, providing the study confirms its efficacy. Expand
Addiction-focused Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy as an Adjunct to Regular Outpatient Treatment for Alcohol Use Disorder: Results from a Randomized Clinical Trial.
TLDR
There was no add-on effect of AF-EMDR on TAU with regard to drinking behavior in outpatients with an AUD, and future studies should first establish proof-of-principle regarding the potential of AF -EMDR therapy to disrupt operant learning and habits relevant in addiction. Expand
Targeting the Reconsolidation of Licit Drug Memories to Prevent Relapse: Focus on Alcohol and Nicotine
TLDR
The growing body of studies in animal models and in humans assessing the effectiveness of pharmacological or behavioral manipulations in reducing relapse by interfering with the reconsolidation of alcohol and nicotine/tobacco memories points to the potential of targeting the reconsideration of these memories as a strategy to suppress relapse to alcohol drinking and tobacco smoking. Expand
Retrieval-Extinction and Relapse Prevention: Rewriting Maladaptive Drug Memories?
TLDR
This mini review article will focus on factors that might be responsible for the retrieval-extinction effects on preventing drug-seeking relapse and how inter-individual differences may influence this therapeutically promising effect. Expand
Augmenting exposure therapy with pre-extinction fear memory reactivation and deepened extinction: A randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Data suggest that PE-FMR is a promising strategy for reducing the overall duration of exposure-based therapies and may additionally boost the speed of fear reduction during exposure therapy. Expand
Role of prefrontal cortex in the extinction of drug memories
TLDR
The recent advances in both animal models of drug abuse and human addicted patients toward the understanding of the mechanistic link between mPFC and drug memory are reviewed, with particular emphasis on how MPFC contributes to the extinction of drug memory at levels ranging from neuronal architecture, synaptic plasticity to molecular signaling and epigenetic regulation.

Varenicline effects on craving, cue reactivity, and smoking reward
TLDR
This is the first placebo-controlled study to demonstrate that varenicline reduced cue-provoked cravings, thereby offering another potential mediator of its therapeutic effects and strengthening the evidence in support of these subjective mechanisms of action. Expand
Evidence for greater cue reactivity among low-dependent vs. high-dependent smokers.
TLDR
Under partially sated conditions, less dependent smokers may be more differentially cue reactive to smoking cues as compared to heavily dependent smokers. Expand
Applying extinction research and theory to cue-exposure addiction treatments.
TLDR
Current animal research regarding the most salient threats to the development and maintenance of extinction is reviewed, and several major procedures for increasing the efficacy of cue-exposure addiction treatment are suggested. Expand
Evaluation of cue reactivity in the natural environment of smokers using ecological momentary assessment.
TLDR
Results indicate that CREMA is well suited for the investigation of cue-elicited craving under real-world conditions and indicates that smoking-related cues significantly increased craving, compared with neutral cues for both photographs and imagery scripts. Expand
Impact of varenicline on cue-specific craving assessed in the natural environment among treatment-seeking smokers
TLDR
The findings suggest that the clinical efficacy of varenicline is not mediated by changes in cue-specific craving during the pre-quit period of treatment-seeking smokers. Expand
A Memory Retrieval-Extinction Procedure to Prevent Drug Craving and Relapse
TLDR
A behavioral intervention that decreases drug seeking in rat models of relapse can decrease drug craving in abstinent heroin addicts and this retrieval-extinction procedure is a promising nonpharmacological method for decreasing drug craving and relapse during abstinence. Expand
The relevance and treatment of cue-induced cravings in tobacco dependence.
TLDR
The literature on the existence, causes, and treatment of cue-induced cravings: intense, episodic cravings typically provoked by situational cues associated with drug use is reviewed. Expand
Reactivity to smoking cues and relapse: two studies of discriminant validity.
TLDR
Two studies examine the psychophysiologic, behavioral and cognitive reactions of Ss who participated in a smoking cue-exposure trial (CUET) to suggest that reactivity to smoking cues may play a role in smoking relapse. Expand
A double blind, placebo-controlled study of the effects of post-retrieval propranolol on reconsolidation of memory for craving and cue reactivity in cocaine dependent humans
TLDR
This double-blind, placebo-controlled laboratory study provides the first evidence that propranolol administration following CCE may modulate memories for learning processes that subserve cocaine craving/cue reactivity in CD humans. Expand
Memory retrieval, extinction, and reinstatement of alcohol seeking
TLDR
The findings show that retrieval-extinction training protocols can alter the propensity to reinstate extinguished drug seeking but that these alterations are not always protective. Expand
