Dr. Criado's main research interest is to understand neuroadaptive changes in brain function associated with an increase risk for the development of drug addiction. His work involves parallel studies in animal models and clinical populations in substance abuse using neuroelectric and neuromagnetic measures (EEG, MEG, ERPs, EROs etc). This work, also known as “translational research”, allows to study the consequences of drug abuse in human subjects and to model the condition in animals. He is currently studying neurophysiological risk factors for the development of alcoholism in Hispanic Americans residing in San Diego County.
