Local Notes
HEALTH SCIENCES: HBO Films is premiering its latest documentary, Addiction, which features UVa Health System Prof. Bankole Johnson, M.D., Ph.D., D.Sc., and patients. Prof. Johnson, chairman of the UVa Department of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Science, is featured for his work with topiramate, a promising compound that he and team members have used as a way to block the dopamine pathway in the brain, a pleasure pathway that mediates the urge to drink alcohol. The medical treatment, in combination with behavioral counseling, is proving effective for many patients in the UVa clinical trials.
HEALTH SCIENCES: DVD available for check-out at the Circulation Desk.
