Neuroscience of Reward and Action Lab


We are in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College.


Our lab's research centers on understanding how the brain generates reward, motivation, actions, and habits. To do this, we incorporate a range of techniques for monitoring and studying the activity of brain cells. 


News bit:  new review/theory article on habits by Smith & Graybiel.


We also study how disorders of reward and action arise, like addictions, Parkinson's disease, and obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders.


Interested undergraduate or graduate students are welcome to get in touch and explore the undergraduate and graduate programs.
