Dr. Terry Robinson will discuss the animal models of addiction as studying addiction-related traits rather than “addiction”. Terry will discuss behavioral pharmacology related to animal models of addiction. He will explain why, in his view, most of what is going on in the field may be leading us astray – and will present a promising model which his lab develops.
