TOP REVIEWS FROM THE ADDICTED BRAIN
This course is truly wonderful, many intellectual mind-opening surprises... for example I almost fell out of my chair when I learned of vaccinations development effort to counter addiction.
very informative and well constructed
However, a bit biased towards negative effects of certain drugs without talking about their positive effects that are supported by research as well
Thank you for an inspiring and informative course. The material has taught me much about my life and work and how to make a difference in the world. Most inspiring. Thank you!
This course covered a lot of fascinating topics such as how drugs affect the brain, why people become addicts, and how we can treat addiction. A very rewarding and fun course!
