I have published two papers relating to drug use.
WADLEY, G. (2016). How psychoactive drugs shape human culture: A multi-disciplinary perspective. Brain Research Bulletin, 126, 138-151.
This is a review of research in several disciplines (mostly anthropology and history) that shows the deep impact of drug use upon human cultures.
WADLEY, G. & Hayden, B. (2015). Pharmacological influences on the Neolithic transition. Journal of Ethnobiology, 35(3), 566-584.
This explores a role for alcohol and drugs in motivating transitions to farming and enabling the social and behavioural changes that follow.
