Domain:

Addiction / Neuropsychopharmacology / Behavioral Neuroscience / Experimental Psychology

Research axis:

  • Experimental study of addiction using an animal model approach
  • Environmental, psychological, and neurobiological determinants of the hallmark stages and behavioral features of addiction, including: escalation of drug use which is a hallmark of the transition to addiction; individual drug preferences; loss of control under the influence; craving; and vulnerability to relapse

Scientific expertise:

  • Operant and Pavlovian conditioning technologies
  • Behavioral economics, choice and decision-making procedures
  • PK/PD modeling of drug self-administration
  • Conception, development, and validation of addiction models in animals
  • Conceptual analysis of addiction theories

Projects:

  • Psychological and neurobiological mechanisms involved in choice between drug and nondrug rewards
  • Psychological and neurobiological mechanisms involved in loss of control under the drug influence
  • Psychological and neurobiological mechanisms involved in drug intake escalation
