Lunch & Learn: Teens, Brains, and DrugsFriday, 23 October, 2020 11:15 am
The Argyle Club, Slick-Urschel Room
Most people who develop a substance use disorder begin using drugs before they are 18. Dr. Judith Grisel will talk about how adolescent brain structure and function enhances risk for addiction. She will also share revelations from her personal journey with gateway drugs, and discuss ideas for prevention and intervention strategies that take advantage of unique opportunities afforded by teen brains.
Ample time will be given for audience questions.
Proceeds from this event go to support our BrainStorm Neuroscience Pitch Competition, which funds early career neuroscientists researching the science of consciousness and improvements in the health and well-being of humankind.
