Course Description:  Research has explored through neuroimaging the structural changes that occur with substance use. These studies have helped in identifying the altered regions in the brain and the cognitive and behavioral aspects substance use may have upon individuals.  This brief advanced course explores the link between chronic cigarette smoking and altered structures in the brain.

Course Goals and Objectives

  1. Identify the structural alterations in the brain that substances, specifically, cigarette smoking, may have upon the brain.
  2. Examine cognitive effects of brain structure alterations upon the individual.
  3. Explore the acute and a chronic effect cigarette smoking has upon the brain.
  4. Propose the application of neuroimaging in assisting with future addiction studies based on the impact of cigarette smoking on future brain functioning.
