Dr. See’s research lab is centered around four current research projects. The first project involves neural substrates of addiction and relapse, using animal models of chronic psychostimulant and opiate self administration to study the role of specific brain nuclei and neurotransmitter systems in mediating drug-taking and drug-seeking behavior. The second project relates to translational research in addiction, with the ultimate goal of determining successful pharmacotherapies for the treatment of drug abuse and dependence. The next research topic is focused on determining sex differences and ovarian hormone regulation in a model of relapse to cocaine-seeking behavior produced by various stimuli. The final focus of Dr. See’s current research is directed toward understanding the mechanisms of short- and long-term antipsychotic drug action in the brain.
