Abstract
Heroine is obtained from morphine, and its appearance is in the form of white or black powder. The routes of administration are injection, sniffing or smoking.

The action of binding triggers the feeling of pain relief and euphoria. When one uses heroine of a long o period, parts of the brain like prefrontal cortex and medial temporal lobe which are responsible for long-term memory, making decisions, complex thinking, and control of a person’s social conduct are damaged

Cerebrospinal fluid is found within this area.
