The Center for Neurobehavioral Research on Addiction
A Research Center of Excellence funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
Our research uses basic behavioral measures of impulsivity and decision making, along with brain imaging and clinical trials of novel medications to gain a comprehensive picture of causes and consequences of addiction and develop more effective treatments for the disorder.
The MOTIVATE clinic uses methods developed in our research to evaluate and treat patients with addictions.
