Experts have discovered another way to combat smoking

Scientists from the United States have discovered yet another way to combat smoking. They identified neurons responsible for the desire to smoke
Scientists from the United States have discovered yet another way to combat smoking. They identified neurons responsible for the desire to smoke. If this zone is deactivated, smokers will get rid of dependence on tobacco, according to the organizers of the study. 

The experiment was conducted with the participation of experimental rodents, which were in contact with nicotine - they were given water with this substance for 6 weeks. After this, the mice were given a choice: to drink ordinary water or the one in which there is nicotine. It turned out that most rodents preferred water with nicotine. 

Scientists have found that this component affects brain receptors that produce dopamine and other hormones that cause a sense of joy. In addition, receptors that stimulate this process were identified. 

Experts believe that the human brain responds to the same principle with nicotine, and dependencies can be avoided by making responsible receptors inactive.
