Scholarship is at the heart of a graduate education. While undergraduate students read about great writers, graduate students create great works of fiction and poetry; while undergraduate students learn about science, graduate students conduct novel scientific experiments.
For instance, at the NMU psychopharmacological lab, current research is aimed at understanding how drugs influence behavior, particularly actions of antipsychotic drugs, which are used to treat schizophrenia and other neuropsychiatric diseases (e.g., bipolar disorder). These studies consist of both behavioral and neurochemical techniques. The goal of this research is to aid in the discovery of better treatments for schizophrenia and other neuropsychiatric diseases. If you are an NMU student who would like to assist us in this research, please contact the Psychopharmacology Lab Director, Dr. Adam Prus. For research details: psychology.nmu.edu/~aprus/
