       Dated: Oct 04, 2009

       Dr. Nestler will speak from 7pm to 9pm at St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan. The talk will take place in the
       Cronin Auditorium, on the 10th floor of 170 West 12th Street New York, NY 10011.

       The Manhattan Adult ADD Support Group is pleased to sponsor the following Lecture:

        The Neurobiology Of Addiction


        Know someone who's had one hangover too many? Who's gone down a path with drinking or painkillers or
       coke -- or food, or gambling -- and found it tough to return? For whom inebriated has become the new
       "normal"? Something's different, but what?

        A lot of things, it turns out. Chemicals are squirted from brain cell to brain cell, while others are brewed for
       later use. Genes are switched off -- or on. The cells themselves can change shape.

       Is this temporary? Or reversible? It's hard to tell, and the story may vary from brain to brain. On Thursday,
       October 8, psychiatrist Eric Nestler will explain more.

        Dr. Nestler -- who chairs the Department of Neuroscience at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine -- has
       spent a career looking into the molecular and genetic events that can come with addiction.

        This can be reached through the Smith Pavilion entrance between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue.

        Doors will open at 6:30.

        We request a $5.00 Donation at our meetings.
