Professor Gavan P. McNally

Professor

Our research is concerned with the fundamental psychological and brain mechanisms for learning and motivation, and how these apply to clinical conditions such as addictions, anxiety disorders, and mood disorders. We are interested in identiyfing these mechanisms, at the cellular, circuit, and systems level. We are also interested in translating this fundamental information into next generation treatments of psychological conditions.
