How do we understand the interplay between human emotions, addictive processes, and neural networks?

As humans, emotions are intrinsic to our socialization, and influence our cognition and behavior. Moreover, extreme problems with emotional processing may contribute to the development of addictive disorders. Study and research the underlying neural networks linked to the experience, understanding, and expression of complex processes such as emotion and addiction.
