NIH-NIDA R21 DA038009    Febo (PI)  2015-2017

Imaging In Vivo Neural Mechanisms of Synthetic Cathinones (Bath Salts)

The goal of this project is to assess the acute dose-dependent effects of 3,4-methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV) on affective and reward seeking behavior. Studies will also examine neural activation using functional MRI and functional connectivity analysis.

NIH-NIDA R21   Setlow;Bruijnzeel (PI)   2015-2017

Lasting behavioral and neuroimaging consequences of adolescent exposure to cannabis smoke

The proposed research program will use a rat model to determine the lasting effects of adolescent exposure to cannabis smoke on affective and cognitive outcome measures, as well as the relationships between these behavioral measures and in vivo neuroimaging measures of brain structural and functional integrity.

NIH-NIDA     Setlow;Maurer (PI)   2015-2017

A rat model of cannabis smoke self-administration

The objective of this grant is to develop a novel delivery system for marihuana self-administration in rats. The long term goal is to better model the effects of marihuana seeking on dependence.

Trigeminal Neuralgia Foundation    Neubert (PI)    2015-2017

Mapping Towards a Cure Identification of Neurophysiologic Signatures of Trigeminal Neuralgia Pain

We will use state of the art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines to locate these centers in people with TN before and after their pain has started. In a similar and parallel study, we will image the brain and spinal cord in rats that have different facial nerve injuries.
