Using the latest research, this fast-paced program explains why the teen years are a critical time for brain development—and why drug use of any kind can derail the brain’s full potential when it comes to critical skills like thinking, remembering, learning and decision-making. Viewers learn the anatomy of the brain and visit a state-of-the-art research lab to see clinical proof of the damage that drugs and alcohol cause. Students also learn the basic functions of the brain, the role of dopamine in the brain’s reward pathway, and how drugs impact that pathway, leading to addiction. ©2012 CC
