Much of my work is aimed at evaluating the roles of distinct monoamine transporters and receptor subtypes in the psychomotor and abuse-related effects of cocaine and amphetamine.... Read more about S. Barak Caine

Susan Carey studies conceptual development, seeking to characterize both the representational primitives that get cognitive development off the ground and the mechanisms through which new representational resources are created.... Read more about Susan Carey

My lab is interested in the molecular and neural circuit-based mechanisms that underlie drug addiction. We are particularly interested in how negative affective states (depression, anxiety, etc) that precede drug taking or emerge with drug withdrawal contribute to addictive behavior. We use rodent models of drug-taking behavior and we study males and females in parallel so we can be sensitive to possible sex differences.

Dr Cornelissen’s research aims to understand the impact of anesthesia and prolonged sedation on brain development in human infants. Currently, she is using electroencephalography (EEG) to explore (1) how healthy infants respond to different types of general anesthesia; and (2) how repeated anesthesia or prolonged sedation in early life affect network connectivity and trajectories of neurodevelopment. She also studies the neurophysiology of pain in childhood, particularly conditions of chronic pain such as juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
