* There have been several instances of humans having electrodes attached to their pleasure centres for various reasons, and when given free reign over their activation have generally gone to pieces in the same way a heroin addict might be expected to. There's even a term for this... Chronic Thalamic Self Stimulation.

* One of the reasons cited for why this seldom works properly for humans is that the "pleasure" center in the brain is more of a "satisfaction" center. Stimulate it and you stop feeling hungry, stressed, or tired while it's stimulated. In animals, who work on an instinctual level, this is equivalent to flooding their system with pleasure because fulfilling needs is practically their entire thought process. Within humans, it merely brings one to a more relaxed level.

Stimulate it and you stop feeling hungry, stressed, or tired while it's stimulated. In animals, who work on an instinctual level, this is equivalent to flooding their system with pleasure pleasure, because fulfilling immediate physical needs is practically their entire thought process. Within humans, it merely brings one on a sense of contentment ''at the moment'', but does nothing to a more relaxed level.
