Downside of High

A TV documentary about marijuana induced psychosis due to increase activation of cannabinoid system and dopamine levels. We visualized neural pathways in the endocannabinoid and dopamine systems to help a lay audience understand the medical effects of THC on the brain. This included an innovative visualization of neurons firing in the prefrontal cortex.
