Posted on 19/05/2017Evenings at the Florey - changing our focus on addiction
Writing in the New York Times in June 2016,We are long overdue for a new perspective — both because our understanding of the neuroscience underlying addiction has changed and because so many existing treatments simply don’t work."
In this lecture, two of the Florey's rising stars, discuss emerging treatments and fresh ways to think about the recovering brain.
Dr Erin Campbell will discuss her recent work developing new ways to model environmental relapse cues, and Rose Crossin will discuss her recent findings on the dramatic growth implications for adolescents who abuse inhalant drugs like glue and petrol, with implications for the recent AvGas sniffing outbreak in the Northern Territory.
The lecture will begin promptly at 6.30pm and finish at approximately 7.45pm.
