Xiaoke Chen, "Targeting neural circuits to address pain and opioid addiction"

Xiaoke Chen, PhD., is Assistant Professor, Department of Biology at Stanford University.  His goal is to understand how brain circuits mediate motivated behaviors, and how maladaptive changes in these circuits cause mood disorders. To achieve this goal, we focus on studying the neural circuits for pain and addiction, as both trigger highly motivated behaviors, whereas, transitioning from acute to chronic pain or from recreational to compulsive drug use involves maladaptive changes of the underlying neuronal circuitry.
