Northwestern University Science Café presents

Drugs, Culture, and the Brain

Presented by Richard Miller

Molecular Pharmacology and Biological Chemistry Department, Northwestern University

There is constant debate in our society about the benefits and problems associated with the use of psychotropic drugs. But what exactly are these substances? Where do they come from and what do they do? How have different cultures used psychotropic drugs from the dawn of man to the present day? Morphine, LSD, Cocaine, Cannabis, Antidepressants and Antipsychotics.

Come and learn about these fascinating substances and discover what they really do.


You can order and eat dinner during the presentation. That’s what I plan to do. The burgers are great! Free parking across the street.
