This course examines current research and theory on the role of the brain in drug addiction. What challenges do biopsychologists and neuroscientists face when investigating addiction? What opportunities for innovative therapies will these investigations make possible? Our path to address these questions will take us through: basic principles of neuroanatomy and neural function; experimental techniques used in brain studies; historical perspectives on drug abuse and treatment; discussions with experts in the field and visits to laboratories using cutting-edge research tools.
