Science on Tap - Greenville - I Need a Drink!

A forum where people come to learn about and discuss recent discoveries in science and technology while having fun!  An expert will give an informal talk for 20 - 30 minutes, followed by Q & A and discussion. Attendees can get up, eat or refresh their beverages at any time. Science on tap is FREE and open to all ages!  

This month:
I Need a Drink! 
There are many motivating factors that govern our desire to drink alcohol. Some of us drink responsibly while others struggle to regulate their alcohol consumption. For instance, those who have experienced traumatic events and develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) often choose to self-medicate with alcohol. Dr. Rice will discuss alcohol’s neurobiological impact on the brain and its relationship to PTSD suffers. Additionally, he will present some encouraging findings from his research laboratory that may lead to new treatments for those who 1) abuse alcohol; 2) have PTSD; and 3) self-medicate with alcohol because of their PTSD.
