Alcohol and food addiction are essentially brain disorders, resulting from altered brain activity and connectivity. Most people with addiction unfortunately relapse after successful treatment due to craving, stress and cues. Non-invasive brain stimulation and brain implants target the abnormal brain activity and connectivity in the brain associated with craving and distress, thereby reinventing psychosurgery, but now based on the known neurobiology and neurophysiology involved in craving and stress.
A healthy, brown paper bag lunch will be provided.
