Furthermore, this convergence of evidence is well placed to explain why certain processes may be compromised in addiction, where a loss of cognitive control may be a central component in both initial and continued drug abuse. Drug addiction is characterized by continued drug use and recurrent drug relapse, despite serious negative consequences, so decrements in cognitive inhibitory control functioning seem likely. Laboratory tests of cognitive inhibitory control usually involve a person withholding a habitual motor response or ignoring the presentation of irrelevant stimuli, while continually updating information and monitoring their performance.

Importantly, Bechara suggests that anomalies within these two systems pre-date the addiction state, and facilitate the progress from drug experimentation to addiction; subsequent chronic use of drugs exacerbates these abnormalities. These modes indicate that reward, motivation and/or drive, learning and memory and cognitive control are key processes to be understood if I.
