Neuroimaging is our window to the brain. Using advanced brain scanning we can investigate the biological processes underlying controlled as well as problematic gambling behavior.
MRI scanners for instance have been used to discover which brain regions are active during gambling which turns out to involve communication between the forebrain and midbrain. From PET scans we know how this communication is made possible by neurotransmission, the signaling between individual neurons in the brain. Functional MRI in turn has shown how blood flow is redistributed during gambling, to support increased regional activity, and how brain activation may be changed when gambling becomes an addiction.
