An article by Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology David Rademacher was published in the European Journal of Neuroscience with help from a Lake Forest College student.

Maiwase Tembo ’15, a neuroscience major, helped Rademacher capture key microscopic images that were used in the first illustration of the published work.

Rademacher’s research looked at how learning to associate a specific environment with the rewarding effects of a drug of abuse reorganized the wiring of the brain to produce drug-seeking behavior.
