    brain and human behavior is a basic requirement for setting realistic goals for personal and societal improvement. Aside from the amazing discoveries, a special glory of this book is the inclusion of wonderful techniques that help us examine the brains of drug users. For example, the development of brain imaging.   In this lesson, developed in partnership with Scholastic, students learn about several common types of brain-imaging technology used by neuroscientists and doctors. This technology serves as a jumping-off point to introduce students to different regions of the brain and ongoing research into teens’ brain development. A student article explains how MRI, .

    Studies in experimental animals have shown that substance use may cause changes in gene expression in a father’s sperm and a mother’s egg cells, which could then affect the growth and brain development of offspring, influencing their response to substances of abuse (Novikova et al., ; Vassoler et al., ; Szutorisz et al.,   Alcohol and drugs have profound effects on the brain, leading to what we see as the external side effects of drug and alcohol abuse. When a person abuses a drug or gets intoxicated, there are clear outward signs and behaviors that display this. However, there are also a slew of consequences for the brain, an organ that is greatly affected by.
