Specific Areas of Research Interest
The National Institute on Drug Abuse is particularly interested in:
Sleep and circadian rhythms involve the same neurosystems that affect reward.  Drugs of abuse directly affect the quality of sleep in dependent and addicted individuals but also in abstinent individuals even after withdrawal symptoms have subsided.  The effects of these drugs vary among various racial and ethnic minorities. Accordingly, more research is needed to explore links between the neurobiology underlying risk for and abuse of psychoactive drugs and sleep deficiencies resulting in health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities.

Some research topics include but are not limited to:

  • Determination of the contributions of the effects of different drugs of abuse on sleep quality in minority populations.
  • Investigations on the mechanisms of persistent sleep problems after withdrawal from drugs.
  • Understanding the effects of prenatal drug exposure on development of sleep patterns in minority populations.
