What is nicotine addiction in the absence of other materials? What cues are associated with smoking? We would like to see brain reward studies in special populations. We are also interested in understanding possible reduced harm in people who use e-cigarettes in cessation attempts, and understanding whether e-cigs are a gateway to other risky behaviors for young people who are experimenting.
We are concerned about access to smoking cessation programs in populations that are hard to reach (rural) and who have other challenges (underserved/marginalized populations including people with serious mental illness). What kind of computer-based or mobile health technologies can assist these groups?
Inadequate sleep is associated with risk of obesity. Electronic media devices interfere with our ability to sleep well - they delay sleep, interrupt sleep, and affect sleep quality. However these devices are addictive and ubiquitous. Can we develop interventions to help people obtain adequate sleep?
