The primary interest of the LAAN is to understand the neurobehavioral impact of acute and chronic drugs of abuse such as alcohol, psychostimulants and heroin. Behavioral, neurochemical and molecular approaches will be utilized to achieve this goal. As information is obtained about the acute and chronic substrates of addiction and dependence, that information can be used for the development of pharmacotherapeutics to treat addictive disorders.
