Nicholas Beacher, Ph.D. joined Dr. Da-Ting Lin’s lab as a postdoctoral fellow in 2020 in the Behavioral Neuroscience Research Branch of NIDA IRP. Nicholas earned his Ph.D. in Psychology: Behavioral & Systems Neuroscience at Rutgers University and studied in vivo electrophysiology. His current research uses custom miniaturized head-mounted microscopes (MiniScopes) to explore in vivo calcium activity in the Nucleus Accumbens (NAc) of rats self-administering rewards under escalating ‘effort’ conditions.
