    SEMINAR

    Fall Quarter 2007

    Units: 4
    Prerequisites: Graduate standing or consent of instructor. See instructor for CRN.

    This seminar course will focus on the NEUROBIOLOGY OF ADDICTION.   Addiction shares many neuroendocrine pathways with other motivated behaviors such as eating, drinking, and social behavior.  We will discuss current research on these pathways and how they can intersect; for instance, how social stimuli can compete with addictive drugs in operant conditioning paradigms, or how access to comfort food may affect social behaviors and vice versa.
