Prescription drugs the topic of forum

By Chris Henry

The Bluegrass Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience will be hosting a presentation Monday discussing the use of Adderall and Ritalin as a study aide.

A cast of experts representing the BGSFN will be speaking about the use of prescription drugs by students as study aides for their upcoming final exams.

BGSFN has been active for nearly 40 years at UK, and according to its website the mission of the BGSFN is to “promote the advancement of neuroscience research within the Bluegrass.”

The panel is scheduled to explain tips on how to study for and succeed in the taking of final exams without the use of these prescription drugs, and answer any question the audience may have.

Whitney Allen, an education sophomore, heard about the presentation in one of her classes.

“I would like to learn about the effects of Adderall on the brain and discover why people use it to help them study,” she said.

“Considering Adderall/Ritalin for Your Final Exams?” is Monday, April 25 at 7 p.m. in the W.T. Young Library Auditorium.
