Reviews of Lectures

"The presenter was interesting but hard to follow some times"

"A reinforcement of established knowledge with proof from a neuroscience aspect"

"Nothing here that I haven't seen on any SBS or abc programme about addiction, and nothing really here about the uses in practical terms. Lots of information about the research she is involved in, and I guess that's what she is funded to do. Other than that, not much information that I didn't already know, and nothing practical I can use in my work setting."
