The main goal of our research is to investigate brain molecular/cellular signaling in alcoholism and psychiatric disorders by using a behavioral neuroscience approach. Interestingly, both genetic and environmental factors contribute to alcoholism, influenced susceptibility, and treatment responsiveness. Thus, we believe that linking addictive behaviors with a neuromodulation process and also intracellular mechanisms are essential to understanding psychiatric symptoms and how to better treat them. The focus of our research is to elucidate molecular mechanism that underline relevant addictive behavioral phenotypes in rodent models using a combination of cutting-edge techniques in the areas of optogenetics, neuroproteomics, neuropharmacology, and behavioral neuroscience.
