On one side of a maze, they would give hungry rats Oreos and on the other, they would give them a control – in this case, rice cakes. (“Just like humans, rats don’t seem to get much pleasure out of eating them,” Schroeder said.) Then, they would give the rats the option of spending time on either side of the maze and measure how long they would spend on the side where they were typically fed Oreos.
They compared the results of the Oreo and rice cake test with results from rats that were given an injection of cocaine or morphine, known addictive substances, on one side of the maze and a shot of saline on the other. Professor Schroeder is licensed by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to purchase and use controlled substances for research.
The research showed the rats conditioned with Oreos spent as much time on the “drug” side of the maze as the rats conditioned with cocaine or morphine.
There's more to addiction than addictivating the "pleasure center" of the brain. That's a lot of it yes, but not all. They've shown that rats like Oreos more than rice cakes as much as they like cocaine or morphine more than saline. Liking drugs and being addicted to drugs are two very different things.

Methinks this article could use a little more input from the editor.
And now, somehow, republicans think everyone will believe that they're not the same as they were 4, 8, or 12 years ago, when really, demographically, they trace their roots to slavery, and their policies have long followed.
I know this is just another lame government cover up
Don't be silly. This was the testing of a 50 year old missile platform causing a previously unseen anomoly thousands of miles from the launch site of said missile.
Yes, but with really intense music!
Do you know what that thing between our ears "costs" our body? 20% of our total energy output is gobbled up by that thing! For 2% of the body mass. It better be effin' worth it!"
Is marked as interesting. I'm sorry. If science is all laser beams are pew pew awesome, then fine. Whatever. I dig it. But this is actual science. You should be begging for more of this shit, and less of the shit I see here before me.
