Nick works closely with Suman Guha on the incredibly complicated study of conducting ICSS and IVSA behavior in the same rats to understand the impact of oxycodone self-administration on reward sensitivity and affective states. In addition, Nick is mastering stereotactic surgery to deliver viral vectors to specific brain regions. Ultimately he will use this approach to target specific neural circuits thought to be important for opioid withdrawal.
