There is a growing clinical literature linking impulsivity to drug cue reactivity in individuals with substance misuse. Evidence supporting this link comes from studies using a variety of behavioral laboratory measures of impulsivity and drug cue reactivity. This link is not surprising considering the nature of impulsivity and drug cue reactivity, which both have elements of a stimulus driven reaction to the environment. This chapter describes in detail the literature supporting this link and discusses the potential neurobiology of the overlap based on brain imaging. Last, some potential treatments that target both impulsivity and drug cue reactivity are discussed.
