Addiction

Description:
What is addiction? How do drugs such as cocaine, heroin and nicotine affect the brain and cause addiction? Why is addiction so difficult to cure? We will explore these fundamental questions by learning about the principles of pharmacology, the structure and organization of the nervous system, the basis of chemical neurotransmission, the mechanism of action of drugs of abuse, and the nature of the changes that take place in the brain following exposure to drugs of abuse.
