Brain Circuits & Drug Relapse

How do specific brain circuits contribute to drug relapse?

How to context-drug associations formed during adolescence contribute to future drug relapse?

Are neurogenic mechanisms involved in the reconsolidation of drug-associated contextual memories?


To answer these questions, our lab utilizes multidisciplinary approaches including:

  • in vivo viral and DREADD-mediated manipulations

  • western blotting and immunohistochemistry

  • adult and adolescent rodent models of drug relapse
