Research in the Mulholland Lab aims to unlock the molecular mechanisms by which chronic alcohol leads to excessive drinking, alcohol-biased choice behaviors, cognitive impairments, negative affective behaviors, and aberrant structural and functional plasticity. We combine various techniques, such as super-resolution confocal microscopy, light sheet whole-brain imaging, in vivo and ex vivo electrophysiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, fiber photometry, and behavior, to understand the cellular and molecular changes that contribute to alcohol use disorder.

Our lab is located on the campus of the Medical University of South Carolina in the Gazes Biomedical Research building.
