Brief Summary of Research 

  • Characterizing the substrates of the neurobiology underlying cocaine and methamphetamine addiction
  • Understanding the molecular response of the brain to abstinence and re-exposure to cocaine and methamphetamine following extensive exposure
  • Examining the extent of cardiovascular damage induced by methamphetamine self-administration, and whether recovery occurs with abstinence
  • Evaluating whether novel potential addiction treatments and hypertensive drugs interact with psychostimulant self-administration and whether they also reduce/ reverse any maladaptive consequences of drug exposure
