I work in a lab that studies the relation between drug addiction and the birth of new neurons in the adult brain, also known as adult neurogenesis. I routinely work with rats and when people ask me what it is I do, I try to give as simple an explanation as possible...
"I get rats addicted to morphine then study how that affects their behaviour and neurogenesis over time"
How weird is it that out of all the songs I had on my playlist, my iPod chose to play Enrique Iglesias' "Addicted"?? :-/ :-/
Coincidence?? I certainly hope so! :P :P
