The main focus of Dr. Gass's current research is to determine how glutamate receptors alter the reinforcing properties of alcohol-related cues. Studies from his laboratory have demonstrated that modulation of the mGluR5 receptor can facilitate the extinction of alcohol-seeking behavior, prevent relapse induced by exposure to alcohol cues, and alter both structural and functional plasticity in the prefrontal cortex.
