    The long-term goal of the McCall lab is to better understand the neural mechanisms underlying the emotional dysregulation associated with stress, chronic pain, and addiction. To achieve this goal, we take three primary approaches: The first is at the level of basic neurobiology using a circuit neuroscience approach. Here, animal models are employed to test the function and response of the neuromodulatory systems as tractable targets for clinical intervention. The second is the development of new wireless technology to overcome existing limitations to experimental design and access to the mammalian nervous system. Finally, the laboratory is developing new approaches to solving computational problems inherent to high dimensional datasets. The McCall lab works closely with engineers, mathematicians, and clinicians to achieve these goals. More information can be found at www.mccall-lab.org.
