How our brains mentally, emotionally, and physically deal with addiction.

Size matters… Nanovesicles in Autism

Ms Natalie Thorne (PhD candidate, Swinburne University of Technology )
Crossing the blood brain barrier is a major challenge for the delivery of therapeutics to the brain. Natalie will discuss her research on targeted therapies in autism and ways of delivering them to the brain.

Natalie is a molecular biologist in the final stages of her PhD in Neuroscience at Swinburne University of Technology. Her research focuses on molecular pathway disruptions and novel therapeutics in autism.

The social life of the brain

Dr Tony Barnett (Research Fellow, Turning Point, Monash University)
More than just neurons firing, or controlling how we move, the brain has a social life. Tony will unpack how culture, architecture and social connection impact addiction. He'll also show how, beyond focussing on neuroscience, we need to build better cities.

Tony’s work explores the social and cultural contexts of drug and alcohol use and addiction treatment. His work draws on critical social science methods to provide in-depth accounts of people’s experiences of addiction treatment, care and recovery.
