The Enchanted Loom reviews, Marc Lewis's book, Memoirs of an Addicted Brain

  1. 1. The Enchanted Loom Teasing sturdy threads from neuroscience masterworks
  2. 2. Teasing 10 threads from Marc Lewis’s…
  3. 3. Thread 1: Addiction is a basic vulnerability of the nervous system itself. (pg. 3)
  4. 4. Thread 2: Feelings are a fundamental component of the meaning we make in our lives. (pg. 36)
  5. 5. Thread 3: Meaning doesn’t appear out of nowhere. We have to grow it. We have to learn who we are, what we want, what we need … our goals, our fears, our appetites and desires. (pg. 35)
  6. 6. Thread 4: Most of the drugs that get us high activate chemical messengers already in our brain. (pg. 51)
  7. 7. Thread 5: The reward centers of the brain are in the lower striatum. The glowing anticipation of pleasure and success are what drive the frontal cortex to act on our behalf. (pg. 63)
  8. 8. Thread 6: The orbitostriatal circuits provide the thrust that takes us from wanting to getting. The electro- chemical currency they use is dopamine, the fuel of desire. (pg. 64)
  9. 9. Thread 7: Opioids provide relief from pain or stress, produce well-being that can energize any goal, and support human attachment. (pg. 133)
  10. 10. Thread 8: Powerful emotional experiences change the brain rapidly and permanently. Fear and anxiety accelerate learning about things to avoid. (pg. 156)
  11. 11. Thread 9: When the brain has to keep working to control an impulse, it gets tired. Very much like a muscle, it gets ex- hausted by the simple act of saying “No” to temptation. (pg. 246)
  12. 12. Thread 10: Synapses used are synapses strengthened; they are the ruts in the garden where rainwater flows, forming deeper and deeper furrows. (pg. 227)
