It blocks both the nucleus accumbens and interneuron opioid receptors, thereby facilitating an increase in GABA tone and a reduction in nucleus accumbens dopamine levels through both direct and indirect mechanisms (Balfour, Yu, & Coolen, 2004), resulting in pornography’s decreased salience. Ultimately, via gradual desensitization, the addictive behaviour’s salience should diminish (Schmidt & Beninger, 2006; Meyer & Quenzer, 2005) The blocking of some of the pleasure receptors in the brain has been shown to reduce cravings associated with addiction (...   [tags: sexual addiction, medical advice, naltrexone ] 606 words
