Addiction, Emotion, and Reward

What are the neuronal mechanisms that link reward with addiction? How does stress affect behavior? These questions motivate research across multiple laboratories at UTSA. From cellular electrophysiology, to behavior, and genetic manipulations, our researchers aim to understand the mechanisms that link higher order cognitive processes with normal and pathological behaviors.

Labs in which this research is ongoing include those of the following PIs.
