SCIENCE STUDIO: Genetics of Addiction
Keith talks with Tamara Phillips, Professor & Vice-Chair, Behavioral Neuroscience, Oregon Health & Science University. She talks about her interest in the genetic risk for addiction - what genetic factors make some people more prone to addiction? Her research on mouse models involves trying to isolate a receptor in the brain that sensitizes an individual to alcohol. http://www.ohsu.edu/xd/education/schools/school-of-medicine/academic-programs/graduate-studies/faculty/grad-studies-faculty.cfm?facultyid=285
