These include, for example, complex decision-making, reward valuation and inhibitory control in adulthood. Dr. Gourley’s team uses behavioral, pharmacological, biochemical, genetic, and cellular approaches to develop and optimize novel therapeutic interventions for adolescent populations vulnerable to depression and addiction. Additionally, her research team aims to better understand the neurobiological mechanisms of resilience to stressors (including social stressors) and drugs of abuse at any age.…
