Course Description

This seminar course focuses primarily on research and theory on biobehavioral processes in substance use disorders. The relevance of the theory and research for the assessment and treatment of such disorders (in humans obviously) will be discussed. Our overarching goal is to gain a more in depth understanding of the integration of, and interaction among, basic biological processes (neurochemical-neurophysiological systems), temperamental-motivational processes, cognitive processes, and behavioral-psychopathological processes implicated in current macro-models of the etiology of substance use disorders.

P: PSY-P324 or permission of the instructor. Course will count as a PSY Advanced in the PSYBA or PSYBS.
