This chapter explores the role of cognition and cognitive biases in the understanding of concepts related to addiction, such as craving, from a number of theoretical stances. These include the dual-affect model, incentive sensitization theory, social learning and expectancy approaches, and finally the cognitive model of drug urges and drug-use behaviour. It also explores methodologies and research methods that have been used to test these various cognitive accounts of addictive behaviour.
