Joshua Peck

Joshua Peck, Psychology Department, had his peer-reviewed paper titled “Abstinence Conflict Model: Toward an Optimal Animal Model for Screening Medications Promoting Drug Abstinence” published in the Journal of the International Review of Neurobiology. The article discusses the rising concern of illegal opiate drug abuse such as heroin and the misuse of legally available pain relievers that have led to serious deleterious health effects or even death. To address this concern, the article argues for the use of animal drug models that more closely approximate the human drug addiction condition. This could lead to the development of more effective environmental and pharmacotherapeutic interventions to treat opiate addiction and addiction to other drugs of abuse.
