Permanent Members - Animal Models of Cognition

Publications by Etienne Quertemont







My research activities focus on the psychobiological and cognitive mechanisms of drug addiction and more particularly alcohol dependence. Two lines of research are developed:

  • Study of cognitive biases in the development and maintenance of drug addiction in humans, especially through the use of virtual reality.
  • Study of the psychopharmacological bases of drug dependence through various animal models of addiction (e.g. locomotor sensitization, place conditioning, self-administration).
