This topic choice was a group decision made mostly due to curiosity. The most interesting thing about this topic is learning how each drug creates its own effects based on the neurotransmitters and their receptors. I’m interested in specifically which neurotransmitters are replicated, blocked and/or not accepted. Other questions we’ve been thinking about are...What drugs have the most affect? What within the brain motivates people to take drugs in the first place? What causes the addiction to drugs? What other parts of the body are effected by drugs? Why are drugs illegal?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
