The psychology and neurobiology of addiction: an incentive-sensitization view.
TLDR
It is argued that traditional negative reinforcement, positive reinforcement, and hedonic accounts of addiction are neither necessary nor sufficient to account for compulsive patterns of drug-seeking and drug-taking behavior.
Incentive-sensitization and addiction.
TLDR
This paper summarizes one view of the process by which drug-taking behavior evolves into compulsive patterns of drug-seeking and drug- taking behavior that take place at the expense of most other activities, and describes the critical neuroadaptations for addiction.
A Tale of Two Addiction Theories: the effects of cocaine exposure on cue-induced motivation and action control
TLDR
The results lend support to both addiction theories, suggesting that drug induced changes to the dopaminergic systems may be affecting both incentive motivation and reward learning.
Basic mechanisms and theories of addictions
TLDR
It is postulate that drug addiction may involve a change in the mechanism of drive satisfaction (Kostowski, 2002), which leads to the sustained activation related to the current drug-related drive, which blocks the operation of other drives.
Motivational Processes Underlying Substance Abuse Disorder.
TLDR
The neural basis for a number of motivational concepts and how they are changed by repeated drug use are described and it is pointed out that addiction is not monolithic and can depend not only on individual differences between addicts, but also on the neurochernical action of specific drug classes.
A Neurobehavioral Approach to Addiction: Implications for the Opioid Epidemic and the Psychology of Addiction
TLDR
The issue of predisposition or vulnerability to becoming addicted to drugs (i.e., the question of why some people who experiment with drugs develop an addiction, while others do not) is addressed.
Liking, wanting, and the incentive-sensitization theory of addiction.
Rewards are both "liked" and "wanted," and those 2 words seem almost interchangeable. However, the brain circuitry that mediates the psychological process of "wanting" a particular reward is
2 Sensitization of the Incentive Value of Drugs
TLDR
It is concluded that since incentive sensitization most prominently occurs after the first few drug exposures, it may represent an important initial step in the addiction process and play an important role in the high risk of relapse.

Classical conditioning and cognitive determinants of subjective craving for opiates: an investigation of their relative contributions.
TLDR
The present investigation has identified correlates of craving predicted by the above models, and tested them empirically, and some of the predictions of the CC formulations were borne out, and the cognitive model received more consistent support.
Dopamine, addiction and reward
A psychomotor stimulant theory of addiction.
TLDR
A new attempt at a general theory of addiction is offered, based on the common denominator of the psychomotor stimulants---amphetamine, cocaine, and related drugs---rather than on thecommon denominators of the socalled depressant drugs~opiates, barbiturates, alcohol, and others.
Brain mechanisms of drug reward and euphoria.
TLDR
The brain circuitry activated by two classes of abused drugs, psychomotor stimulants and opiates, is now partially understood and the current evidence suggests a shared mechanism of stimulant reward and opiate reward.
