Bickel Lab

"Lead by principal investigator Warren K. Bickel, Ph.D., the Bickel Lab focuses on addiction and human decision making. Fundamental to solving the problem of addiction and other dysfunctional health behaviors is to understand how an individual continues to engage in a behavior despite recognizing that this behavior is both problematic and self-handicapping. The Addiction Recovery Research Center seeks to answer this and related questions by examining decision-making processes that support dysfunctional behaviors and seeks novel therapeutic means to repair those dysfunctional processes. Projects include the translational assessment of dysfunctional decision-making among the addicted and using that knowledge to explore of diverse interventions to treatment and improve the decision-making dysfunction. A central tenet of this research is that trans-disease processes undergird the expression of a variety of self-handicapping decisions and that successful treatments will be applicable across those diseases."
