Non-nociceptive roles of opioids in the CNS: opioids’ effects on neurogenesis, learning, memory and affect

Non-nociceptive roles of opioids in the CNS: opioids’ effects on neurogenesis, learning, memory and affect, Published online: 05 December 2018; doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0092-2

Maladaptive modulation of learning, memory and affect by opioids is linked to dysfunctional neurogenesis.
