In the first half of this two-part series with National Institute on Drug Abuse Director Nora Volkow, the focus is on the human brain. What do we know about the brain today? What emerging technologies are taking us into the future of the study of the brain? Also discussed: how our brains heal, grow and evolve, and how drugs damage the brain.
In the conclusion of this two-part discussion with Dr. Nora Volkow, the conversation delves further into our knowledge of the brain. Differences between child and adult brains, how exercise and what you eat can effect your brain health, how memory is retained, and the mechanics of addiction in the brain are all discussed.
