It does provide a reminder of the machinery going on back there, where the maladaptive behavior of addiction is directly connected with the otherwise beneficial ability to learn anything, as well as one for why withdrawal from anything often needs to be handled delicately. Though I'm not crazy about using the term "remodeling" to illustrate why it is that the addiction never really leaves the addict.
Of course, most of this is old news, having been documented extensively by Canadian researcher k.d. lang in the early 90's.
