This is a time of unprecedented access to high-reward, high-dopamine stimuli: drugs, food, news, gambling, shopping, gaming, texting, Facebooking, Instagramming, YouTubing, tweeting

. . . The increased numbers, variety, and potency are staggering. As such, we’ve all become vulnerable to compulsive overconsumption. Yet, it is possible to find balance by keeping dopamine in check.  
 
In this talk, Professor Anna Lembke will provide a practical, science-informed approach to addressing compulsive overconsumption of everything from food, to sex, to video games. Q&A will follow Dr. Lembke’s presentation.

 

Learning Objectives:
  • Review the basic neuroscience of pleasure and pain and
    what happens in the brain as we get addicted
     

  • Explore a neuroscience-informed framework for targeting
    compulsive overconsumption of drugs and behaviors
