CSFQ – Changes in Sexual Functioning Questionnaire

The instrument used in this study was the CSFQ which is a item questionnaire. When the brain is quwstionnaire with a large amount of dopamine and other neurotransmitters, it releases less dopamine, or reduces the number of receptors to receive less signals, therefore the amount of dopamine released in the brain of a drug user decreases in an unusual manner, and the ability of the brain to feel pleasure decreases significantly. These impairments lead to the creation of a very powerful message in the brain, and as a result, the communication channels of the brain are impaired.
