When we try to get rid of a bad habit, whether it involves food or drugs or gambling, it often seems like we’re fighting ourselves inside. The reality is not far off: Addiction twists the reward pathways of the brain to keep addicts tied to whatever gets them high. But can we use our knowledge of the brain to undo these neurological knots? Join the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan for an interactive discussion with Dr. Anna Yusim to learn what addiction is, why some people are more susceptible to it, the role different parts of the brain play in addiction and behavior, and how to break the addiction cycle.
