Stress, Drug Addiction and Eating Disorders

PENS – BLACKWELL SUMMER SCHOOL 2009, June 21 - 28, 2009
Dubrovnik, Croatia

Application Deadline: 2009-03-15

Aims and Scope
Eating disorders and drug addiction are health problems that showed an alarming growth in Europe over the last ten years. It appears that they could share common psychobiological mechanisms. In particular, both are strongly influenced by stressful situations. The aims of the school are both to provide to PhD/postdoc students a state of the art of the psychobiological basis of reward-related disorders and to promote an active debate confronting opposing views. The ultimate goal is to get students to forge a solide and objective opinion to guide future efficient researches in the field. Lectures and active discussions with highly renowned scientists will allow reaching these goals.

Neurobiology of stress; Corticosteroids and neurobiology; Animal models of eating disorders; Animal models of drug use/addiction; Neurobiology of eating behaviour/eating disorders; Neurobiology of drug use/drug addiction; Endocannabinoids and eating disorders; Endocannabinoids and drug addiction; Theoretical constructs of reward-related disorders.
