Addictions are among the most frequent and costly of all mental and brain disorders. In the past decade, new training methods have been developed to improve addiction treatment based on insights into the (neuro)cognitive mechanisms involved. The symposium provides an overview of these developments and introduces new methods inspired by emerging insights into working mechanisms.
