Dr. Courtney Cameron
Courtney is the most recent member to join the P2 research lab. She received her PhD in Psychology as part of the Behavioral Neuroscience Program at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in 2014. Courtney recently completed postdoctoral training from 2014-2019 under the supervision of Dr. Ilana Witten at Princeton University. Her most recent research was published in Neuron in 2019 where she demonstrated that cocaine motivation was associated with changes in an infralimbic-nucleus accumbens circuit. Courtney brings expertise in optogenetic manipulations, fast scanning cyclic voltammetry and various paradigms for assessing reward. Her current research will study the dynamics of neural microcircuits in opioid dependent states.
