About This Event
Decision-making is disrupted in those suffering from drug-dependence. Dr. Gremel’s Lab uses rodent models to identify how drug-dependence changes brain areas involved in decision-making, with the goal of providing much-needed data on how to improve therapeutic treatment and restore appropriate self-control. She will discuss findings suggesting that goal-directed decision-making and the controlling neural circuits are disrupted in drug dependence, and touch on whether these deficits can be treated.
