The neuroscience of problem gambling

Neuroscientist Olivia Carter responds to the recent Crio’s Question on problem gambling with an outline of what the current research suggests about addiction. She explains that there has been an emphasis on drug addiction in the studies – because it’s easier to inject a mouse with heroin than teach it to read a form guide.

Olivia also offers an opportunity to be involved in a confidential study on the neuroscience of gambling.
