“Addiction” is a word that is often used casually … we’re “addicted” to our phones, to chocolate, etc. But, what is addiction in the clinical sense? How do addictive substances, such as alcohol or cocaine, affect the brain and body to lead to addiction? We’ll talk with Dr. Nicole Schramm-Sapyta about the biological, psychological, and sociological causes of addiction. If we understand the complex array of causes of addiction, then we will begin to see solutions to which we can all contribute.
Science Tonight (formerly the Science Cafe) is a livestream show for people who want to know more. Host Chris Smith talks with interesting people making exciting, everyday discoveries in science, nature, tech and more. Watch every Thursday night to grow your brain and get the latest stories in the science world.
