Binghamton Research magazine highlights the relevance of Dr. Spear’s research.
Linda Spear, PhD
Melissa Morales, MS
I am currently investigating developmental differences for the involvement of the NMDA and GABA neurotransmitter systems in ethanol-induced social inhibition. Previously my research has focused on acute and chronic tolerance development to ethanol-induced social inhibition, as well as investigating the aversive and reinforcing properties of ethanol using the conditioned place preference paradigm.
Maggie Broadwater, MS
My research has mainly focused on age-related differences in acute and chronic tolerance development to ethanol. Currently I am interested in investigating the long-term neurobehavioral effects of adolescent alcohol exposure.
Jes Sweatt, BS
I am interested in developmental differences in heart rate variability. Specifically, I am investigating possible age differences in the effects of stress and alcohol on parameters of heart rate variability in adult and adolescent rats.
