Once thought to produce global, nonspecific brain injury, drugs of abuse are now known to produce selective neuroadaptations in particular brain regions. These neuroadaptations are being closely examined for clues to the development, maintenance, and treatment of addiction. The hippocampus is an area of particular interest, as it is central to many aspects of the addictive process, including relapse to drug taking. A recently appreciated hippocampal neuroadapation produced by drugs as diverse… 
Adult neurogenesis and the memories of drug addiction
TLDR
The suggested role of the hippocampus in the storage and retrieval of declarative and contextual memories on the one hand, and in the regulation of mood and affect on the other, provides a fertile ground for further exploring the mutual relationships between postnatal hippocampal neurogenesis and addictive behaviours.

TLDR
The suggested role of the hippocampus in the storage and retrieval of declarative and contextual memories on the one hand, and in the regulation of mood and affect on the other, provides a fertile ground for further exploring the mutual relationships between postnatal hippocampal neurogenesis and addictive behaviours.
Comparative neuroscience of stimulant-induced memory dysfunction: role for neurogenesis in the adult hippocampus
  • J. Canales
  • Biology, Psychology
    Behavioural pharmacology
  • 2010
TLDR
Evidence suggests that stimulant abuse impacts negatively on at least four areas of memory/cognitive function that may be influenced by adult hippocampal neurogenesis: contextual memory, spatial memory, working memory and cognitive flexibility.

Deficient plasticity in the hippocampus and the spiral of addiction: focus on adult neurogenesis.
  • J. Canales
  • Psychology, Biology

  • 2013
TLDR
The evidence reviewed here suggests that deficient neurogenesis is associated with several components of the downward spiraling loop that characterizes addiction, including elevated sensitivity to drug-induced reward and reinforcement, enhanced neurohormonal responsiveness, emergence of a negative affective state, memory impairment, and inflexible behavior.
Opiate Analgesics as Negative Modulators of Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis: Potential Implications in Clinical Practice
TLDR
The goal of this review is to critically revise the present state of knowledge on the effect of opiate drugs on the different developmental stages of ahNG, as well as the possible underlying mechanisms.
Cocaine and MDMA Induce Cellular and Molecular Changes in Adult Neurogenic Systems: Functional Implications
TLDR
The effects that cocaine and MDMA produce not only on adult neurogenesis, but also on the DG and olfactory bulbs are explored and the possible role of new adult neurons in cocaine- and MDMA-induced impairments are discussed.
Effects of brain insults and pharmacological manipulations on the adult hippocampal neurogenesis
TLDR
This review intends to discuss the changes in the hippocampal neurogenesis caused by pathologic brain insults such as brain ischemia, traumatic brain injury, epileptic seizures, neurodegenerative disorder, and psychiatric diseases.
High cocaine dosage decreases neurogenesis in the hippocampus and impairs working memory
TLDR
It is found that cocaine, in addition to the changes it produces in the reward system, if taken in high doses, can attenuate the production and development of new neurons in the hippocampus, and reduce working memory.
Converging action of alcohol consumption and cannabinoid receptor activation on adult hippocampal neurogenesis.
TLDR
The findings suggest that adult hippocampal neurogenesis is a key factor involved in drug abuse and that it may provide a new strategy for the treatment of alcohol addiction and dependence.

Repeated morphine treatment alters polysialylated neural cell adhesion molecule, glutamate decarboxylase‐67 expression and cell proliferation in the adult rat hippocampus
TLDR
Results show, for the first time, that, in addition to reducing cell proliferation and neurogenesis, chronic exposure to morphine dramatically alters neuronal phenotypes in the dentate gyrus‐CA3 region of the adult rat hippocampus.

TLDR
These findings reveal a wider role for neurotrophic factors in drug action than has previously been expected, and suggest that neurotrophin-induced trophic responses in neuronal connectivity and plasticity may be involved in the mechanism of action of several classes of CNS drugs.
