Travis M Moschak
Assistant Professor, Biological Sciences

Dr. Moschak studies behavioral neuroscience, with a broad interest in the neurocircuitry underlying motivation and addiction. He is specifically interested in the behavioral and neural biomarkers predicting individual differences in drug-seeking behavior. This includes behaviors such as distress tolerance and impulsivity, as well as neural markers such as the oscillatory coherence between brain regions and the neural ensembles within brain regions. His research focuses on the interactions between frontal, motor, and limbic brain regions, using cutting edge technologies to record and manipulate neural activity on a subsecond timescale. In addition to his interest in addiction, Dr. Moschak's lab also investigates the underlying neurobiology of motivation, decision-making, and stress.
