Research Description

Research in Dr. Marshall's lab is directed at (1) the neurobiological bases of chronic drug abuse (cocaine, amphetamine), and (2) factors that facilitate outcome after brain injury relevant to Parkinson's disease. Both projects use animal models to study brain events contributing to human disease. Undergraduates participate in many ways, including handling and training animals, sectioning and staining tissue, analyzing tissue, and assisting in neurosurgical procedures. Students participating for more than 2 quarters are encouraged to develop projects in which they take more of a lead role
