Nicholas Graziane, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, will present “Identifying Neural Circuits that Encode Opioid-Associated Contexts.”
Dr. Graziane is a welcome recent addition to the Penn State Addition Community. His research looks to identify the molecular and cellular substrates that mediate a number of devastating brain diseases, including opioid addiction. With his established animal models, he examines changes in synaptic transmission and in intrinsic membrate excitability of neurons and circuits that are thought to control motivation, reward, and affective states.
The talk will be held in room c3860 (Hershey) and video conference to 218 Biobehavioral Health (UP). The event will be streamed live (available to any location) https://publicmultimedia.hmc.psu.edu/Mediasite/Play/3cbe454771a940a39cfd4b99ceb89df21d
