   CSL 3510 - Advanced Pharmacology

1.0 Credits
Prerequisites: CSL 2051  with a grade of C- or higher.
Neuroscience and genetic research on addiction continues to make significant progress toward understanding the changes in the brain that underlie drug use and addictive behaviors. This research has the potential to significantly affect both the way in which we think about addiction, and those that suffer from it. Addictive drugs have habit-forming actions that can be localized to a variety of brain regions that can activate the reward circuitry in the brain. This class will explore the neurobiological basis of addiction and how addictive drugs produce neurochemical changes in the brain’s reward pathway. It will also explore new technologies for treatment and prevention based on brain science. This class will also seek to enhance the ability of students to offer treatment services in a manner that respects gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, cultural, familial, systemic and socioeconomic diversity.
