Research

CSBN researchers have made outstanding contributions to the study of molecular, neuronal, hormonal, physiological and psychological processes that contribute to behavior and disease.

Major research areas at the CSBN are described below.


Addiction and reward

Researchers explore basic mechanisms of reward seeking and the role of the nervous system in drug use, abuse and relapse.

Andreas Arvanitogiannis, Nadia Chaudhri, Paul Clarke, Marco Leyton, Pierre-Paul Rompre, Uri Shalev, Peter Shizgal

Addiction and Reward

Decision making

CSBN researchers study the behavioral and biological bases of how choices are made.

Andreas Arvanitogiannis, Jon Sakata, Peter Shizgal

Decision Making

Learning and memory

Researchers investigate how memories are acquired and where they are stored in the brain, as well as the neurobiology of learning.

Learning and Memory

Biological rhythms and neurophysiology

CSBN members study circadian influences and patterns of neural activity elicited during learning, sleep, wakefulness and behaviour.

Shimon Amir, Andrew Chapman, Richard Courtemanche, Nadia Chaudhri, Mihaela Iordanova, Uri Shalev, Thien Dang-Vu

Biological Rhythms and Neurophysiology

Sexual behaviour and female cognition

CSBN members conduct research on how gonadal hormones affect sexual behaviors and how ovarian hormones influence memory bias in females.
