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.

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

News bit:  check out the June Scientific American for a feature story on habits by Graybiel & Smith. 

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