Department of Biophysics Seminar "Neuroeconomics in Drug Abuse" Feb. 1
- 10:30 AM
"Neuroeconomics in Drug Abuse" by Shi-Jiang Li, PhD, Professor, Department of Biophysics, Medical College of Wisconsin.
Shi-Jiang Li, Ph.D., focuses on fMRI research related to
Alzheimer’s disease, drugs of abuse, traumatic brain injury,
PTSD and neuropharmacology.
He is investigating neural circuitry underlying reward learning and decision making. The central hypothesis is
that drugs of abuse are a disease agent and that repeated
drug use alters brain valuation circuitry that could bias the
decision-making processes and lead to addiction. The
study will greatly enhance the understanding of drugs of
abuse and may potentially guide the development of new
treatments for addiction. He is particularly interested in the
neuroeconomics of drug addiction.
