Research

Developmental Psychobiology and Psychopharmacology. Animal models of addiction.

"My research interests include the developmental plasticity of the brain following exposure to drugs or toxins either in utero or during the first weeks of life. Current research examines the effects of early insults (e.g., drugs of abuse, lesions, and stress) on the development of the brain dopamine system, using both behavioral and neurochemical methodology. Our laboratory is also involved in the development of invertebrate models of drug addiction in Caenorhabditis elegans."

Dr. Neal-Beliveau is accepting new graduate students for Fall 2019 enrollment.
