Last week we successfully submitted an ERC starting grant for our ongoing work investigating how cannabinoids influence learning, interoception, and brain-body interaction! The grant proposes a series of four interlocking experiments probing the neurovisceral mechanisms underlying behavioral, subjective, and interoceptive effects of pharmaceutical THC and CBD. This work continues our recent collaboration with Dr. Samia Joca, investigating the influence of CBD on affective bias. We’re excited to continue this work as it will open up fascinating new research questions for our lab, and will also provide us with new pharmacological manipulations and models we can apply in our computational psychiatry research. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for good reviews – watch this space in the next 6 months!
