Jonathan Morrow, M.D., Ph.D. received his B.S. in Biological Sciences from the University of Southern California, and his M.D. and Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Michigan. Dr. Morrow stayed on at Michigan to complete his residency training in Adult Psychiatry, and subsequently became certified in Addiction Medicine. He is currently an Associate Professor of Psychiatry, and he provides medication management and other clinical care to patients through the University of Michigan Addiction Treatment Services. Dr. Morrow's primary research interest is in delineating the basic neurobiology that underlies motivated behavior, and determining how variation in that neurobiology can lead to psychopathology.

The aim of this talk will be to provide an overview of the neurobiology of addiction, with an emphasis on the interplay between conscious decision-making and subconscious or “automatic” desires. Individual variation in this neurobiology will also be discussed, especially with regard to its influence on susceptibility to addiction. Finally, the scientific findings outlined in this talk will be used to raise questions about morality, personal responsibility, and societal responses to addiction and other behavioral disorders.

Who we are
The Cognitive Science Community is an inclusive undergraduate organization that aims to further interest in cognitive science and related fields.

We meet biweekly Thursdays 5pm (ET) mostly for professor talks, alumni Q&A, paper seminars, or social events. Attendence isn't mandatory, so feel free to join whatever interests you.

At the end of the Winter Semester we hold a Colloquium where students can showcase their research and members can listen to hosted panelists. Undergraduate students are prioritized. Check out previous Colloquiums.
