Faculty of Medicine, nursing and Health Sciences

In the Addition Integrated Research Program, School of Psychological Sciences, research is underway to understand how the core processes of reward/punishment, learning, cognitive control and decision-making and their neural underpinnings contribute to vulnerability to addiction, to shape different forms of addiction and to influence recovery from addiction. This research has the potential to contribute to:

  • biologically-based and theory-driven classification and diagnosis of addictive disorders;
  • better prognosis of treatments pathways and recovery outcomes;
  • development of biomarkers of addiction recovery; and
  • development of novel interventions to counteract addiction-related weakening of brain function.

More information is available at the faculty website.
