Marisela Morales is a Senior Investigator in the Intramural Research Program at the National Institute on Drug Abuse in the National Institutes of Health. She has been investigating the molecules, cells and neuronal pathways central to the neurobiology of drug addiction through use of anatomical, biochemical, cell biological and electrophysiological approaches. The primary questions to be addressed by her research include: (a) what is the brain circuitry through which addictive drugs have their habit-forming actions and (b) what neuro-adaptations of this circuitry accompany the transition from recreational to compulsive drug-taking.
