Title

Neural circuits and reconsolidation mechanisms contributing to drug relapse

Abstract

Cocaine-use disorders are characterized by repeated relapses to drug-seeking and -taking behavior. Relapse can be triggered by a multitude of stimuli (cues, contexts) that were previously associated with drug use. Our lab utilizes a rodent model of self-administration to understand how specific brain circuits and maladaptive memory processes contribute to drug-seeking behavior. This talk will focus on how current investigations in the lab fit into the historical framework of both the drug reinstatement and memory reconsolidation fields.
