Continuing our inadvertent "neuroscience" theme today, the Society for Neuroscience recently concluded its Brain Awareness Video Contest. Three videos from a field of 45 were selected, but it's still not too late to participate in the People's Choice Awards.
This video, titled "Dopamine and Addiction - Noir" or "Love Story for YouTube," was one of the videos submitted and it's very clever. Styled as almost pitch-perfect film noir (or dare I say science noir?), the piece explains the role dopamine neurons play in addiction.
You can probably guess which one I voted for.
