Welcome to the Neurocircuitry of Motivated Behavior Lab webpage!

The NMB-Lab is in the Department of Psychology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

The goal of our laboratory is to understand how brain circuits regulate behavior, and how natural processes like learning, and factors like drugs of abuse can cause fundamental changes in these circuits. We do this to better understand the brain, and in order to develop better treatments for addiction in people.

 From the links above you can find out about our lab vision, how we do our science, and the people in our lab.
