The research center is equipped with the latest research technology, for example, powerful tools that make it possible to quickly and precisely add and delete gene sequences in animal models and to visualize brain activity in patients and experimental subjects.
 
The research aims to develop methods to reduce activity in the brain areas involved in the stress response, thus reducing the stress and discomfort that can lead to relapse to addiction.  The research has an interdisciplinary focus that includes, for example, examination of how decision-making is influenced by social factors and how the brain manages risky decisions.
