Module content
Seminar classes:
During seminars students will be introdced into basic neurobiology topics.

During the seminars students will receive basic knowledge about methods used for animal testing of various substances (including pharmacological tests), pharmacology of selected substances of abuse, treament methods, along with basics of human brain reactivity towards drugs of addiction.
The main topics discussed during seminars will be as follows:
1. Cell culturing
2. Human brain under the influence of drugs of addiction
3. Cellular and animal models used in life sciences
4. Opioids as a pain relieving drugs with addictive properties
5. Alcohol and nicotine as not prohibited substances of addiction
6. Cocaine, psychostimulants, hallucinogens, psychodelics
7. Cannabinoids and their modifications (so called designer drugs)
8. Drug addiction treatment methods
