abstract
No effective drug treatments for cocaine dependence exist, although combined behavioral and pharmacological interventions, reviewed in Chapter I, may lead to better treatment outcomes. The goal of the current research is to characterize neurobiological and cognitive deficits associated with cocaine use in monkeys, and examine cognitive enhancement as a pharmacotherapeutic approach to compliment behavioral methods.
