About Jason Round
Jason has expertise in the psychobiology of drug addiction, impulsivity and stress.
He is a member of:
- the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies
- the International Society for Research on Impulsivity
Jason's current research interests focus on disentangling the effects of tobacco smoking from cannabis smoking in terms of the impact this has on impulsive behaviour and reactivity to stressors and drug-related cues in the environment. He is also interested in the application of neuromodulatory techniques such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to reduce intrusive thoughts (e.g. drug craving) and/or enhance capacity to exert self-control over behaviour.
