Research Interests
The projects in my laboratory focus on the neurobiology of substance abuse and development of new probes for the study of brain function by external imaging. Using positron emission tomography (PET) scanning and magnetic resonance imaging, our current projects concern dependence on methamphetamine and nicotine. The questions that we are asking in our human research relate to the links between genetics, cognitive function, affect and vulnerability to drug abuse and the maintenance of dependence. Correlative studies in animal models of addiction will relate altered neuronal function with gene expression, as affected by drug treatments. The goal is to develop a better understanding of the neurobiology of addiction, using a translational approach toward rational design of therapeutics.
