How do drugs and drug use impact the brain? In this podcast from a recent SciCafe, Carl Hart, Associate Professor at Columbia University, shared his latest research and his sometimes surprising findings.

The program kicked off with an introduction by Rob DeSalle, Curator in the Museum’s Division of Invertebrate Zoology and curator of the ongoing exhibition “Brain: The Inside Story.”

The next SciCafe, “Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World,” takes place on February 2, 2011. Learn more about this popular after-hours series featuring cocktails and conversation about cutting-edge science topics.
