Dr. Anand's laboratory is interested in understanding how addictive drugs progessively alter the molecular and cellular make up of specific neural circuits to sustain the development of compulsive addictive behavior. They are focused on the actions of nicotine as a model for understanding mechanisms underlying CNS plasticity and for understainding mechanisms that serendipitously enhance the ability of the CNS to withstand neurotoxic insults characteristic of neurodegenerative diseases.
