TOP REVIEWS FROM THE ADDICTED BRAIN
One of the best course. Before I took up this course I have negative feelings towards the drugs addicts. But this course completely change my behavior and opinions towards them. Thank you so much.
very informative and well constructed
However, a bit biased towards negative effects of certain drugs without talking about their positive effects that are supported by research as well
The course taught me a lot about how brain gets addicted, What happens in our body after taking drugs, why the test and screen for drugs designed in particular way, etc.
This course was a perfect beginning to understand the basics of how drugs affect the brain and to elicit the interest in knowing more about about these drugs. Thank you
