The laboratory focuses on identifying the psychophysiological underpinnings of smoking and obesity, the two major causes of preventable disease and disabilities in the United States. We use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and dense sensor array event-related potentials (ERPs) to characterize the dysfunctional brain mechanisms that mediate maladaptive responses to rewards and reward-related cues. The ultimate goal of our line of research is to develop neurocircuitry-informed, tailored interventions for substance use disorders and weight-loss.
