How gambling hijacks your brain

Prof Amanda Roberts (Professor of Psychology)
As addiction develops, the brain changes in response to “highs” and develops “cravings”. Research has shown that people who experience gambling addiction share similar alterations in the brain as people with drug addiction. When hooked, a physical withdrawal occurs when individuals attempt to stop gambling. This talk will look at what happens in the brain when someone gambles, and explore what it is about gambling games that make them so attractive.

Content warning: this talk will involve discussion of gambling-related harms.

We will also discuss psychological tools such as mindfulness, and how they can help us find balance and still enable us to embrace the challenges that life throws at us.
