The emergence of a circuit model for addiction
Friday 6 May @ 4 pm – 5:30 pm (Sherrington Library)
Christian Lüscher from the University of Geneva will be speaking about the development of a circuit model for addiction. His research group studies the cellular mechanisms that underlie drug reinforcement and addiction, with the belief that addiction can be understood as a sequence of neuroadaptive changes starting in the mesolimbic system and expanding to other parts of the brain with chronic use.
