Dr Larry Young addresses how “the love hormone” oxytocin works.  Are there any sure-fire ways of stimulating the oxytocin system better?  Dr Young will discuss the parallels between love and addiction and the possibilities of using oxytocin to treat psychiatric disorders.

Then Associate Professor Michele Glass discusses the effects of drugs such as cannabinoids on your brain and body.  As governments around the world grapple with the issue of whether to legalise cannabis, do we know if a little experimentation is really a problem? And can cannabis products really be used to treat disease?
