The Science of Addiction - How Drugs & Alcohol Hijack the Pleasure Centers of the Brain

Thursday, July 12, 2018

7:00 pm to 8:00 pm


Learning how the brain responds to pleasure has blasted the doors of addiction research wide open. Join psychiatrist Dr. Paul Garson, Stony Brook Southampton Hospitalís Director of the Division of Mental Health Services, for a talk and discussion about how the brainís reward and pleasure centers may be commandeered by drugs and alcohol, so much so that addiction is now recognized as a chronic disease that changes both the function and the structure of the brain.
