Sex differences in compulsive-like alcohol drinking

We are using a chemogenetic approach to determine the contribution of neural pathways and neuronal populations to inflexible, aversion-resistant alcohol drinking.

Project | 02

Dopaminergic contributions to behavioral flexibility

We are exploring the role of dopamine in reversal learning and punished reward-seeking. 

Project | 03

Neural mechanisms of opioid reward and aversion

We are using chemogenetics and immunohistochemistry to explore the contribution of VTA neurons to opioid-mediated reward and aversion. This work is funded through internal grants from Miami University.

Project | 04

Early life stress model of co-morbid PTSD and alcohol use disorder

In collaboration with Dr. Jennifer Quinn, we are investigating how exposure to a traumatic event in infancy can enhance fear-learning and alcohol-drinking.
