Our current research is about the molecular aspects of amphetamines-induced change in the dopamine and related neurotransmitter systems in the reward pathway, as well as the mechanism of amphetamine-induced neurotoxicity and neuronal cell degeneration. In addition, our research is also related to the circadian genes expression in the reward circuitry in order to investigate the involvement of drug addiction and the mammalian circadian timing system.
