OPIOIDREWARD: Brain mechanisms in reward and decision-making

How do the activation of different neurochemical systems influence reward and decision making in the brain?

About the Project

We are investigating how activation of various neurochemical systems play into the brain's way of processing decisions and rewards. To address this question we will, among other things, use medication that blocks or activates central neurochemical systems in the brain.

Objectives

To shed light on how the activation of different neurochemical systems influences reward and decision-making in the brain.
