Bruce Hope, Ph.D.
Dr. Bruce Hope is Chief of the Neuronal Ensembles in Addiction Section. He investigates how cues and rewards activate and alter specific patterns of neurons called neuronal ensembles that encode learned associations between these cues and rewards. He studies the molecular and cellular alterations within these ensembles that form the long-lasting physical traces that encode memory, including memories involved in drug addiction. Dr. Hope received a Ph.D. in neuroscience from the University of British Columbia.
