The Brain Science of Substance Misuse

March 18 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

This presentation will describe key brain regions affected by drug misuse and how experimental paradigms model prevention strategies. Learning objectives:

1. Identify the brain regions associated with reward, impulsivity, and learning

2. Convey a basic understanding of how major classes of drugs interact with these brain regions

3. Explore several models of laboratory research on drug misuse and examine how key findings from laboratory research provide evidence for major prevention and treatment effort
