Event description

Description

We are delighted to announce that Professor Anne Lingford-Hughes, will be delivering our annual Raymond and Beverly Sackler Distinguished Lecture in Neuroscience, established in honour of Professor Sir Keith Peters.

All drugs of abuse alter brain function, but how do they do this, what makes someone vulnerable to addiction and are any changes enduring? This lecture will describe how brain imaging has enabled us to investigate the impact of different drugs of abuse on the brain and how this knowledge helps us develop better prevention and treatment strategies.

Professor Anne Lingford-Hughes leads the Centre for Psychiatry and Addiction Biology at Imperial College London. She is also a Consultant Psychiatrist with a particular interest in pharmacological treatments of alcohol problems and other substance addictions at Central North West London NHS Foundation Trust. Her research has focused on using neuroimaging and neuropharmacological challenges to characterize the neurobiology of addiction. The aim of her research programme is to better understand neurobiology underpinning these disorders to improve treatment.

Cwestiynau Cyffredin

Beth yw fy opsiynau o ran trafnidiaeth/parcio ar gyfer teithio i'r digwyddiad ac yn ôl?

Noder bod y mannau parcio i geir ger Adeilad Hadyn Ellis yn brin. Mae mannau parcio i bobl anabl ar gael wrth ochr yr adeilad (gyferbyn â’r adeilad Optometreg).

Cathays yw’r orsaf drenau agosaf (pum munud ar droed) ac mae'r lleoedd parcio talu-ac-arddangos agosaf ar Ffordd Senghennydd neu Blas y Parc.

Sut gallaf gysylltu â’r trefnydd i ofyn cwestiynau iddo/i?
