Research Interests

Extensive training in neuroanatomical, neurophysiological, general physiological, histological, psychopharmacological, surgical, behaviour modification, and computer techniques. I was engaged in research on variables contributing to long-term smoking patterns and applications of autocorrelations to time-series analysis.

Other research interests included task-dependent properties of rewarding brain stimulation: pain, stress and endorphin release in the CNS; effects of toxic substances on brain and behaviour processes. I was also involved in a survey of harassment among male and female penitentiary staff.
