Led by principal investigator Jeff Stein, Ph.D., the Stein Lab's research interests include behavioral economics, neuroeconomics, addiction, obesity, and health behavior. His projects have looked at role of the brain pathways involved in pain, pleasure, decision-making, craving, and addiction; how patients value the advantages and disadvantages of hormone therapy medications, including a reduced likelihood of cancer recurrence but also possible adverse side effects and prescription costs; and discovering whether ventilated filters on cigarettes have been a boon or bane to public health.
