Welcome to Brain Connections!

Brain Connections was created to share information about how problem gambling affects the brain. 

When people have a problem with gambling, they often wonder about the impact on their brains. How has the brain changed? Are those changes permanent? How will it feel to quit or cut back on gambling? 

Brain Connections translates current research into understandable answers to these and other questions in handout and video formats.

What Is This Video About?

This video features a brain character called ‘BE’ going through the phases of a gambling problem. It shows how the brain gets hooked on gambling, how its functioning can be hijacked but also how the brain can be restored if the gambling stops. Key concepts in the ‘Clinical Handouts’ and ‘BE Briefs!’ are introduced.

Two Kinds Of Information: BE Brief! & Clinical Handouts

Brain Connections provides two types of information. The ‘BE Brief!‘ tab, has straightforward answers to five different questions about problem gambling and the brain. The ‘Clinical Handouts‘ tab, includes more detailed answers as well as sections to help deepen understanding of the concepts.
