Who’s Next: Nora Volkow–Newsweek

Nora Volkow, the Director of NIDA, made Newsweek’s Who’s Next list for the year. The article gives an overview of her work.

She talks a little about the role of dopamine and the effects of stress on the number of dopamine receptors. When I posted her talk this weekend I forgot to mention this. It provokes some interesting questions about the role of stress in relapse and addiction onset.
