I have considerable experience in rodent measures of behavior, with a specific focus on motivational brain systems. I am interested in how changes in these systems lead to maladaptive behaviors such as uncontrollable drug seeking. Additionally, I have a strong interest in teaching and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students in research. At home, I stay busy teaching and mentoring two small human beings and experimenting with photography and gardening.

Sean Monroe, BS

Education: B.S. Neuroscience and Substance Misuse & Addiction, The Ohio State University

Hometown: Vienna, WV

Research interests:  I am interested in the neural structures and pathways involved in drug addiction, with an emphasis on opioids. In particular, I am interested in how these areas play a role in chronic drug use in the face of punishment, as well as relapse.

Awards: International Behavioral Neuroscience Society Travel Award 2021

Publications: Monroe and Radke 2021, Radke et al. 2021
