Suzanne Erb's research to date has focused on an examination of the long-lasting effects of prior drug experience on behavioural and neurobiological responses to stress.  More recently, her research interests have extended to a consideration of how maternal experience and early life stress may serve to alter the relationship between stress and responses to psychostimulants in adulthood, and how early life stress (e.g., childhood trauma or neglect) may influence the subsequent effects of acute stress on reward processing and response inhibition in adulthood.

Research Interests

Neurobiology of substance abuse, relapse to drug use, relationship between stress and drug seeking, neuronal plasticity
