Our work on the divergent effects of the atypical anticonvulsant, levetiracetam (Keppra®), on alcohol and cocaine-related behaviors appeared as an advance online publication in the June 2013 issue of Neuropsychopharmacology. This work was the result of a collaboration between the Malanga and Hodge Laboratories in the UNC Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies. Elliott Robinson (Malanga Lab), a graduate student in the UNC Neurobiology Curriculum and Medical Scientist Training Program, and Meng Chen, a postdoctoral researcher in the Malanga Lab, were first and second authors, respectively. Alice Stamatakis (Stuber Lab), Sara Faccidomo (Hodge Lab), Michael Krouse and Eric Fish (Malanga Lab) also contributed.
