BRAIN SCIENCE - Your Addicted Brain

The Illinois Science Council presents 

 

"Your Addicted Brain"

People use the term “addicted” all the time – “I’m addicted to my morning coffee,” “You’re addicted to that TV show.”  But when does a preference turns into a true addiction of the brain?  Is there really any difference between a caffeine addiction and a cocaine one?  What’s the difference between a drug addiction and a behavior addiction, like gambling or gaming?                 T. Celeste Napier, Professor of Pharmacology and Director of the Center for Compulsive Behavior and Addiction at Rush University, will explain the ins and outs, and ups and downs, of addiction, how scientists study it, and what can be done about it.

6:00 -7:30 pm

    I'm thrilled people are interested in ISC's Brain Science talks. However. . . know that RSVP'ing here on Meetup IS NOT a reservation for the event. You must click on the link provided to actually reserve yourself a spot. If a program is "sold" out, send an email as indicated to be placed on a waitlist. When you only respond here, ISC has no idea how many people will attend, have their names or ability to contact attendees if there are changes. So please use the link. Thank you.

    I'd love to attend one of these, but they're just too early for a week night. :(

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
