Stress, Depression and Addiction

​Our lab is interested in understanding the neurobiology of addiction, especially as it pertains to co-morbid psychiatric disorders. More specifically, we examine the neurobiological interface between addiction, traumatic stress, and pain. We utilize a variety of behavioral, pharmacological, circuit-based, molecular, and cellular techniques to ask and answer these questions.
