In part two of the video series, “The Brain: A Terrible Thing to Waste”, Dr. Adam Bianchini, the director of medicine for The Road to Freedom program, explains the advantages of taking an in-depth look at the physiology of the brain and how it improves addiction treatment.
By viewing images of the brain used with SPECT imaging, you will see how doctors can better diagnose medical conditions and thus treat the physiology of the body and the brain. With MRIs, X-rays, and CT scans, Dr. Bianchini shows you how doctors use these techniques to further identify what’s going on in the brain. He shows how certain parts of the brain light up when there is overwhelming activity and blood flow and what occurs when there is little to no activity.
So what parts of the brain shut down during drug addiction? How does one lose their inhibitions and decision-making skills? With this visual representation, you can discover how drugs like cocaine, heroin, and alcohol affect the brain. To find out more, watch the video below.
