Dr. Edward Horng-An Nieh of UVA Pharmacology was recently interviewed for the Research in Motion series.

He talks about his research: “Our research focuses on the brain’s ability to separate the good experiences from the bad. That ability is disrupted in patients fighting neuropsychiatric disorders like substance use disorders, anxiety disorders and eating disorders. Our goal is to figure out the exact changes that are happening in the brain so that we can engineer devices or design drugs to reverse those changes and return the brain’s activity back to normal.”
