"flies will act very weird they've been given small cocaine," said. "they exhibit excessive scratching, grooming extension their mouth parts." because humans use many similar biochemical pathways, mcclung's research actually help scientists unravel the molecular basis cocaine addiction in people. also may lay foundation for highly specific drugs to treat addiction. and, by videotaping high a gilmer hall laboratory, team is able offer findings world's studying drug. "this gives us new tool leam more about brain receptors and neurotransmitters, also to better understand the genetic physiological basis of cocaine addiction," said michael sesma, an employee in division genetics developmental biology at national institute general medical sciences. nigms officially funded research. their research includes more than 12 months work has been covered numerous journals, including current biology, which first featured cocaine-induced flies drosophua melanogaster its jan. 15 cover story. issue, duo that similar genes brain patterns exist fruit higher vertebrates.
