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
