Justin Strickland received his B.S. in Biology and Psychology from Davidson College in 2014 and his M.S. in Experimental Psychology from the University of Kentucky in 2016. His research focuses on using human laboratory techniques to understand the behavioral and pharmacological mechanisms contributing to cocaine and other substance use disorders. He utilizes an interdisciplinary approach by combining techniques and theoretical perspectives used in the experimental analysis of behavior, neuroscience, and behavioral economics. He is particularly interested in the role that exteroceptive and interoceptive drug cues play in the development of substance use disorders and their resistance to treatment interventions.
