Hi and welcome to part one of the fourth publication of the Journal of Couch Chemistry.

This semester we have had two classes of students undertake Couch Chemistry. The following posts represent the first class' work. The second class will be posted next week.

Students have been working hard on the articles below during this semester, with the focus being 'what are the effect of drugs on the brain and therefore a related social issue'. They welcome your comments on their individual articles. The articles also include a link to each students' public education piece which focuses on their chosen social issue. For this piece, students had complete control over the method of presentation.

Please also feel free to re-share this blog to people you think will appreciate it.

You can find out more about Couch Chemistry in the About section.
