Brain area involved in addiction activated earlier than previously thought in recreational cocaine users

Non-dependent users also experience dopamine release in response to drug cues
Tue, 2017-05-23 14:25

Even among non-dependent cocaine users, cues associated with consumption of the drug lead to dopamine release in an area of the brain thought to promote compulsive use, according to researchers at McGill University.

The findings, published in Scientific Reports, suggest that people who consider themselves recreational users could be further along the road to addiction than they might have realized.

Teaching practices could play an important role in preventing bullying

Relationship between teachers and students can be crucial, especially for boys, study finds
Tue, 2017-05-23 13:58

Classrooms that encourage competition between students may inadvertently be creating settings where bullying is more likely to take place. That’s one of the conclusions that can be drawn from work led by McGill University researchers Maria Di Stasio and Robert Savage, who recently published a paper on the subject in the Journal of Adolescence. But it’s only part of the story.
