Explore the effects of alcohol on the brain in a cocktail session hosted by neuroscientist Elizabeth Tunbridge. Mix a cocktail to lubricate a discussion on why drugs of abuse are pleasurable, and also –by hijacking the brain’s pleasure pathways – why they can become addictive. Explore how our individual genetic make-up influences how our brains respond to drugs of abuse. For those who like their science shaken, and even stirred!
