On behalf of Penn's Law & Brain Student Group, we are pleased to invite you to a lecture and reception with Rita Z. Goldstein, Ph.D., Tenured Scientist of Medical Research at Brookhaven National Laboratory. The lecture will take place on Thursday, March 15th from 4:30-6:00 p.m. in Room 214, Gittis Center, at the University of Pennsylvania Law School (3400 Chestnut Street). Dr. Goldstein will present on "Targeting the Prefrontal Cortex and Cognition for Intervention in Addiction: Legal & Social Implications of Addiction as a Disorder of the Brain." Dr. Goldstein specializes in the neuropsychology and neuroimaging of drug addiction. Her primary research interest lies in studying the interplay between the cognitive-emotional-behavioral and neurobiological changes that accompany cocaine addiction with the goal of understanding the mechanisms that underlie the recurring nature of addiction to drugs (intoxication, withdrawal, craving, relapse). Dr. Goldstein earned a B.A. in psychology and French from Israel’s Tel Aviv University in 1992, and a Ph.D. in health clinical psychology from the University of Miami in 1999. She joined the BNL staff in 2002, and became a tenured scientist in 2008. The lecture will be followed by an open reception sponsored by the Law & Brain Student Group at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. All lectures in this series are open to the University and external community.
