About the B.R.A.I.N. Lab

The B.R.A.I.N. Lab focuses on the psycho-neurobiological mechanisms underlying cognitive, affective, and stress-associated aspects of decision-making and impulsivity: specifically, those related to substance use and concurrent mental disorders.

Lab, they aim to deepen our understanding and facilitate more effective interventions for individuals living with substance use and mental disorders.
