John Neumaier, M.D., Ph.D., Dept. of Psychiatry & Pharmacology, UW  Repeated exposure to various drugs can alter how cells function and how our brains process reward signals. At the March Eastside Science Café, join UW’s John Neumaier, M.D., Ph.D., to discuss recent discoveries in the neurobiology of addiction that we hope can lead to new treatments for addiction based on a deeper understanding of the brain mechanisms that drugs derail.
