Chae Ha Yang, PhD
Dr. Chae Ha Yang’s area of research involves investigating the neurobiological mechanisms of drug addiction. Currently, the main topic of research in his lab focuses on neural mechanisms underlying the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of drug addiction. These studies involve a highly integrative and unique approach to identify the neural systems that mediate roles of acupuncture in suppressing drug reinforcement, craving and relapse to drug seeking with relatively complex rodent models of intravenous drug self-administration.
