To study the cue-induced heroin craving, we used a method which could investigate the time-related neural activity by non-linear regression with a beta model. We found that during different time, the activated brain regions such as nucleus accumbens, anterior nucleus and the medial frontal gyrus were very different by comparing the heroin subjects and the healthy volunteers watching the heroin movie. This might show us a time relationship between these regions related to craving.
