About Azin Behnood-Rod
I am an International research scholar from Iran with an MD degree and I’ve been working with Dr.Bruijnzeel in the Department of Psychiatry since 2018. My main focus is studying the neuropharmacology of different substances and their effects on brain function. The majority of my experiments involve Intravascular self-administration (IVSA). Also, I am interested in studying the effects of medical agents and substances with possible rewarding effects on the activity and behavior of animal models.
