Dr Carla Meurk

Neuroscience research has been used to promote the idea that addiction is a brain disease. This has been justified as a way to reduce stigma and increase access to treatment. However, this model is not the panacea it seems. In this talk, I assess arguments for and against this model, and make a case for ethical health and science communication about addiction.
