Memoirs of An Addicted Brain
A Neuroscientist Examines His Former Life on DrugsBook - 2011
Is addiction rooted in moral weakness or within the deep workings of the brain? Readers of this gripping and triumphant memoir by neuroscientist and former drug addict Dr Marc Lewis will understand intimately the "workings of the mind" and how drugs speak to the brain - itself designed to seek rewards and soothe pain - in its own language. Lewis makes the science of addiction accessible, the struggles of addiction believable and the possibility of recovery attainable.
