Description

The Brain and Recovery: An Update on the Neuroscience of Addiction” will be presented on Friday April 21, 2017; with a reception from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm, the presentation from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm and a question/answer period from 2:00 pm to 2:30 pm. The program will be presented by Dr. Kevin T. McCauley, MD; co-founder of the Institute on Addiction Study; writer of the award-winning DVD “Pleasure Unwoven” and the DVD “Memo To Self.” The last twenty years produced an explosion of understanding not only about addiction (substance use disorders) but how our brains enable our most human capacities such as hedonic valuation and decision-making. This lecture summarizes the most current neuroscientific research about addiction - research that explains how the brain constructs pleasurable experiences, what happens when this process goes wrong, and why this can have a dramatic impact in our ability to make proper choices.
