Brief Summary of Research
Our laboratory is mainly focused on measuring monoamine (dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine) neurotransmitters in several different animal models of drug and alcohol abuse. The two primary techniques used are cyclic voltammetry and microdialysis. We have current projects examining the consequences of chronic exposure to cocaine, alcohol, methamphetamine, ritalin and speedball. We have ongoning collaborations with Dr. David Roberts concerning the neurobiological consequesces of cocaine self-administration and with Dr. Jeff Weiner concerning the impact of ritalin treatment on alcohol self administration in rats.
