Topics

  • Neuropharmacology/toxicology; neurophysiology: effects of acute or chronic exposure to environmental toxins or alcohol on the central nervous system using approaches ranging from molecular/cellular to systems/whole organism.
  • Behavioral pharmacology/behavioral toxicology: effects of acute or chronic exposure to environmental toxins or alcohol on behavior with a focus on the underlying behavioral and neural mechanisms in animal models and humans. Along with issues of tolerance and dependence for alcohol, this includes craving and initiation and reinforcement of drinking.
  • Neuroteratology: effects of acute or chronic prenatal or early exposure to environmental toxins or alcohol on the central nervous system.
