Professor Wiers presentation will describe the neuro-cognitive processes involved in the etiology of addictive behaviours and related psychopathology. This will include his team’s research on how peoples’ brains change during the development of addictive behaviours, and the evidence-base for the cognitive training programs they have developed to “re-train” these processes back to normal, and increase control over addictive behaviours.
