ABSTRACT
Some trigger mechanisms of pathological and biological motivations were investigated in experimental models of animal behavior (feeding, drinking, stereotypic acts, experimental alcoholism, and so on), as well as high level of brain-specific molecular synthesis responsible for development of pathological motivations. Neurophysiological processes transforming some biological drives to pathological motivations are described and discussed.
