The drug is chemical substances that disrupt into the brain’s system and affecting the nerve function of send, process, and receive back the information. There are two kinds of ways that drugs have in order to do that, by imitating the chemical messengers that exist naturally inside the brain, or overstimulated the process of the circuit inside the brain. The first method allows the drugs to fool the brain receptors and make them activate the nerve cell. The message that the nerve cell send is an abnormal message. Meanwhile the second method allows the drugs to disrupt the communication line between neurons that will also disrupt the message that use for normal communication patterns. Both of the method usually is normally used in order to treat someone medical condition that required as a medication for certain disease or surgery. The effects of the drugs have been controlled by the responsible person so that the effects will only happen in short period and will not take long term impact for the brain. But if the usage is out of the limit, the brain will no longer get use to the use of normal impulse by natural chemical inside the brain, so that the receptor and the nerve system will ask for the impulse from the drugs.
