Jennifer Law-Henry is a graduate student in the Center for Neural Science. She is currently working on an appetitive conditioning experiment examining the motivational valence of cocaine in rodents. She hopes to use her PhD to alleviate the social problems that plague everyday people and their families because they fail to be conceptualized with attention to their underlying neural substrates. As a stepping stone to addiction, examining the motivational power of a stimulant like cocaine may help refine treatment methods currently in use for addicts. Her work seeks to bridge cellular and molecular neuroscience with behavioral and social psychology in hopes of helping prevent relapse and improving addiction treatment.
