LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR - Addiction: a backdoor in the brain

Saturday 16 March: 2:00pm - 3:30pm

Department of Psychology, Psychology Lecture Theatre, Downing Street, CB2 3EB

Dr David Belin will share the most recent insights into the mechanisms by which drugs of abuse, such as alcohol, heroin or cocaine, hijack our learning and motivational brain systems to trigger the maladaptive, compulsive, drug seeking habits of which those who suffer from an addiction are prisoners.

Taking you to a fascinating journey inside the brain, Dr Belin will discuss how addictive drugs open a backdoor in the brain that aberrantly couples impulses and habits, thereby revealing some of the most precious secrets of the motivational self.
