Okay, before you all go off getting drunk or stoned out of your minds so you can celebrate Thanksgiving with the relatives, here’s a fun lesson about your brain on drugs.
“This interactive game is a great educational tool, teaching you how various legal and illegal drugs work in the brain. Have you ever wondered how various drugs work in the brain to produce the symptoms they do? Well, this wonderful interactive website, Mouse Party, shows you the molecular details of how heroin, exstacy, alcohol, marijuana, methamphetamines, cocaine and LSD work.”

Very cool. I’d appreciate more detail though, hope they develop it. Happy Thanksgiving, my Yankee friends (if you give a fuck, like).

Thanks Yogaboy! Happy November 22nd to you. I hope they develop it more also. But since it’s a site specializing on the reward pathways of the brain, I doubt it.
There were more links at the top of the page under ‘Drugs Alter the Reward Pathway”. Here it is:
