Dr. Boettiger studies the neurobiology of cognitive intermediate phenotypes for addictive disorders and focuses on three types of dysfunction along the perception-action cycle: attentional bias towards addiction-related stimuli, aberrant stimulus response association learning, and immediate reward selection bias.

Dr. Fitting studies the effects of drugs, such as opioids and (endo)cannabinoids, in the context of HIV-1-related neurodegenerative processes by determining the cellular, structural, and molecular mechanisms underlying drug interaction with neuroAIDS. Visit her online: Fitting Drug Abuse/HIV Group.
Kenan Distinguished Professor | Chair

Dr. Lysle studies neuroimmunology, the role of neuroinflammation in opioid addiction, and the development of post-traumatic stress disorder. Visit him online: Donald T. Lysle, Ph.D..
Research Associate Professor

Dr. Navarro studies the brain mechanisms that modulate neurobiological responses to alcohol and is interested in understanding how the brain neurocircuitry changes after ethanol exposure and how these changes can contribute to the transition from alcohol used to alcohol abused.
129 Davie Hall
Dr. Reissner studies how chronic self-administration of cocaine leads to modifications in cellular physiology and neuronastrocyte communication and how these modifications may contribute to long-term drug abuse.
