NIDA sponsors frontiers in addiction research mini-convention

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health, will sponsor a NIDA mini-convention, Frontiers in Addiction Research, on Friday, October 22, 2004, in conjunction with the 34th Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN), at the San Diego Convention Center.

Frontiers in Addiction Research will bring together outstanding scientists from a wide array of research disciplines to share advances and discuss future directions in the neuroscience of drug abuse and addiction. The symposium, which coincides with NIDA's 30th anniversary, includes 20 speakers and 72 poster presentations, will run from 8:00 a.m. to 9:15 p.m.

"NIDA-supported research forms an integral part of the field of neuroscience," says NIDA Director Dr. Nora D. Volkow. "Over the past 30 years, thousands of NIDA-supported scientists have helped replace myths about drug abuse with scientific understanding of the true nature of drug addiction. Many of the discoveries discussed at this meeting hold great promise for treating and preventing drug abuse, addiction, and their health and social consequences." Oral presentations will be in Room 30; posters can be viewed in Room 29. The schedule is:

8:00 a.m. to 8:10 a.m. - Introductory remarks from Dr. Timothy P. Condon, NIDA Deputy Director.

8:10 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. - Behavioral Neuroscience of Nicotine Addiction. The topic areas of this session highlight a range of research, including motivationally positive and negative aspects of nicotine, identifying the nicotine receptor in the human brain, and dopamine-based and nondopamine reward pathways. The NIDA co-chairs are Dr. William Corrigall and Dr. Paul Schnur.

10:30 a.m. to 12:35 p.m. - Creative Directions in Imaging. Functional biomedical imaging modalities have evolved into powerful tools in drug-abuse research. This session will present examples of imaging research that are now possible. The NIDA co-chairs are Dr. Thoma
