Title:  Dissection of the Neuronal Circuits and Synapses that Mediate the Effects of Drugs of Abuse
 
Description:  Research in the laboratory headed by Dr. Alvarez is aimed at identifying the neuronal circuits that mediate and regulate reward-motivated and compulsive behaviors. The laboratory has focused on the behaviors toward substance of abuse, such as cocaine and ethanol, in addition to consummatory behaviors towards natural rewards like food and water. Dr. Alvarez pursues an integrative approach that includes the use of electrophysiology, 2-photon laser scanning microscopy and fast-scanning cyclic voltammetry for dopamine detection together with behavioral testing and in vivo manipulation of circuit activity using optogenetic and chemogenetic tools.
