GABA, memory, and drug addiction

  The reason gabamenergics have recently been shown to be effective in 
decreasing the desire to use certain narcotics such as cocaine and heroin 
may be the result of re-arranging neural networks so that they don't 
trigger drug-related memories in the same manner that epileptics have 
deja vu after heavy electrical activity in the brain before seizures. I 
would like to hear your ideas on why the gabamanergics reduce drug 
cravings.
