Research Profile

Dr. Boissoneault’s research focuses on the application of behavioral, psychophysiological, and neuroimaging approaches to the study of a) pain and related constructs (e.g., fatigue); b) alcohol and substance use; and c) their interaction. For instance, he is interested in improving understanding of how pain may influence alcohol effects and use behavior, as well as how alcohol use affects pain processing. He also has a strong interest in mechanisms underlying placebo efficacy, pain-related decision making, and the acute and chronic neurobehavioral effects of alcohol use.
