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.
