'From habit to addiction: A slippery slope' - Free and open to all - TONIGHT!

15 May 2013, 6.15-9.15pm, doors open at 6pm

The Cambridge Union, Cambridge 

Free and open to all
We are pleased to invite you to 'From habit to addiction: A slippery slope', an evening of science discussion exploring the social, neural and genetic factors underlying addiction. The transition from occasional habit to chronic addiction may be key to society's negative relationship with drugs, but how much do we know about the process of becoming addicted and what roles do biological and social factors play?

Join three scientists working on the science behind addiction and hear how genetics, neuroscience and social factors contribute towards turning a habit into an addiction.
