"Antoniette Maldonado-Devincci"

My current research focuses on the role of alcohol's effects modulation of particular systems in the brain, namely GABAergic neurosteroids. My current research has two overall goals. The first goal to is understand the development of neuroactive steroids during adolescence and how drug exposure during this developmental period would contribute to abnormal brain development and drug-seeking and drug-taking behavior. The second aim is to understand how alcohol dependence changes brain neurocircuitry and how these changes can be reversed by potential therapeutic intervention.
