What do we do?
We are a behavioural neuroscience laboratory based in the Department of Psychology at the University of Guelph. Research conducted in the Addiction, Interoception, and Motivation Laboratory (AIM Lab) investigates the behaviour-altering effects of drugs of abuse. We use a variety of experimental procedures including self-administration and Pavlovian conditioning to study and manipulate the stimulus and reinforcing properties of drugs.
Undergraduate students are welcome to inquire directly to Dr. Murray about joining our laboratory through volunteer or course credit routes. We routinely have students enrolled in PSYC, BIOM, and NEUR independent study courses.
