Wade-Galuska Awaits Journal Publication

Dr. Tammy Wade-Galuska, assistant professor of psychology, is awaiting final acceptance by the Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior of her report on how the reinforcing effectiveness of commonly abused drugs (namely, psychostimulants and opiates) are altered during periods of opiate withdrawal. She has also been working in collaboration with Conditioning and Learning faculty in the Psychology Department at the College of Charleston on projects that use operant conditioning procedures to investigate impulsivity and behavioral disruption during negative incentive shifts. During the 2009-2010 academic year, she attended the annual Conference for the Southeastern Association for Behavior Analysis in Wilmington, N.C.
