Drugs, Addiction and the Brain

alcohol-addiction-brain-scan

I will be giving a talk on drugs, addiction and the brain for alcohol and drug awareness week  which is scheduled to take place November 17th – 21st 2014.

This talk will explain how the brain basically works and how and where drugs such as heroin, cocaine, alcohol and cannabis work in the brain. The concept of “reward” which is the property that is characteristic of many addictive drugs will also be discussed. The talk will be useful for those interested in learning about the diverse effects of drugs of abuse on the brain.

Details: Wednesday 19th November 7-9 pm at the Absolute Hotel, Limerick– Abbey Suite 3. Free Admission.
