Substance Abuse & The Brain

This course examines commonly abused substances and their psychobiological effects. Accordingly, it surveys a variety of "street drugs" - from crack/cocaine marijuana, oxycodone "E" to inhalants - focusing on the interaction with the brain reward and stress systems. Also explored are gender/age interactions as they relate to propensity to "try" and abuse drugs, especially during adolescent years.
