What happens to your brain when you are high, intoxicated, or dependent on drugs? Why is it so difficult to break an addiction to certain drugs like cocaine, alcohol, and tobacco? Why have people since the earliest times sought to alter their brain chemistry by getting high? This video closely examines these questions and others that will give students insights into the dynamics of drugs, drug abuse, and human behavior. Animation and brain scans, as well as interviews with physicians and clinicians present an integrated and fascinating portrayal of the risks and effects of drug abuse in contemporary society. 24 minutes.
