The CUChange Lab

The Center for Health and Addiction:
Neuroscience, Genes, and Environment

Operating out of the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience and the Institute of Cognitive Science, the CUChange Lab is co-directed by Dr. Angela Bryan, Professor of Social Psychology, Dr. Kent Hutchison, Professor of Behavioral Neuroscience, and Dr. Cinnamon Bidwell, Assistant Research Professor at the Institute of Cognitive Science.

Members of the CUChange Lab seek to conduct transdisciplinary research to explore the psychological, neurocognitive, physiological, genetic, and epigenetic factors that are linked with health and risk behavior. We believe that a better understanding of the full range of influences on health and risk behavior will allow better tailoring of behavioral interventions to increase health behavior, decrease risk behavior, and ultimately decrease morbidity and mortality and increase quality of life.
