The science of addiction

We all have our own ways of pursuing pleasure: some of us exercise; some of us love gaming; some of us can’t resist another bit of chocolate. But what happens when our ability to manage the pursuit of pleasure goes wrong? In this episode of A Grey Matter, we talked to QBI’s Dr James Kesby about the brain’s reward mechanism – the dopamine system – and how faults in this mechanism can cause disorders such as depression and addiction.
