A visually appealing booklet for students that explains how drugs change the way the communication centers in the brain work and ultimately cause their effects. Formerly referred to as Mind Over Matter, this booklet is part of a series focused on easy-to-understand scientific facts. For a limited time, hard copies of the older Mind Over Matter series with Sara Bellum are still available from our clearinghouse.
