Try Carlson's "Physiology of Behaviour" - thats a good undergraduate level
textbook with sections on addiction, synapse function etc. I think it's up
to edition 6 now, which was published very recently. For a more indepth
book, try something like "Fundamental Neuroscience" - can't remember the
author list, but is copyrighted 1999! (so up to date...)
