Masterclass 2010

/ Actueel 

In an innovative interdisciplinary meeting to discuss the current state of affairs on the concept of addiction, ten of the world most influential scientists and their talented juniors were brought together for two days in the Kurhaus in Scheveningen.

In this short report five of them, from very different disciplines, are interviewed on their views on the themes that the Masterclass covers: What is addiction? Is addiction a brain disease? Are compulsive behaviors, like sex and gaming, real addictions? What are important implications of the concept of addiction?
