Cardiac Neuroscience Lab


This NIAAA supported lab conducts brain-heart research by integrating the conceptual models and methods of addiction science, psychology, neuroscience, psychophysiology, pharmacology, exercise science, and computational modeling. Our research is aimed at understanding the relations of alcohol and other drug use behaviors to cognition, emotional regulation, and neurocardiac signaling, and the interaction of substance use behaviors with other health behaviors, such as sleep and exercise. We study mechanisms of behavior change and novel body-focused interventions for biobehavioral disorders such as addiction. The lab provides team science training for undergraduate and graduate students, post-baccalaureate research assistants, postdoctoral fellows, and early career faculty.  For more information about our research and opportunities to work with us, please visit our website at https://www.cardiacneurolab.com/
