Alcohol is one of the most widely used drugs in the world.
The effects of alcohol on our brain range from improved mood to decreased self-control and poor decision-making.
This talk will explore how alcohol affects behaviours and thought processes that might lead to heavy and harmful alcohol use during alcohol intoxication, prolonged alcohol use and hangover.
Understanding how these behaviours and thought processes may motivate continued alcohol use could lead to the development of treatments that will help us to tackle barriers to reducing drinking.
This event is free and open to everyone.
There is no need to book so please just turn up on the night. The event starts at 7pm.
