    Examining Compulsive Drinking in a Rodent Model of Alcohol Use Disorder

    Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a devastating disease that negatively affects millions of Americans and costs billions of dollars a year. A key feature of AUD is compulsive drinking, wherein a person continues to consume alcohol despite negative consequences. In this month’s Science Café, we will discuss general theories of AUD and my research on compulsive drinking in a rodent model of AUD. In addition, I’ll talk about my somewhat unusual career path from physics to neuroscience.
