Neural Regulation of Social Reward Behavior and Drug Addiction:
We investigate the neural mechanisms by which social reward experiences influence drug addiction using rodent models.
Spinal Cord Injury:
We study effects of chronic spinal cord injury on reflex generators in the spinal cord that control sexual and bladder function in rodent models.
We study steroid feedback control of GnRH and the neural pathways involved in female reproductive function and dysfunction in disease, using sheep and mouse models.
