He has directed a well-funded lab for more than 20 years and chaired the Neurobiology of Motivated Behavior study section at National Institutes of Health.He and his colleagues have recently described a role for the brain noradrenergic locus coeruleus system in decision and behavioral flexibility, as well as a key role for the neuropeptides orexin/hypocretins in reward processing and addiction.Dr. Aston-Jones earned his Ph.D. in Neurobiology from the California Institute of Technology with Floyd Bloom, and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Salk Institute.
