Research Interests

Dr. Rasmussen's research interests are broadly in the area of behavioral economics and behavioral pharmacology. Specifically, she has two laboratories (animal and human) that are dedicated to examining behavioral economic and neural correlates of behaviors and decision-making involved in obesity. Her animal work is centered around how dopaminergic, endocannainoid, and opioid neurotransmitter systems affect the value of food reinforcement in diet-induced and genetic rodent models of obesity. Her human work focuses on behavioral economic factors that influence food-based decision-making related to obesity. She recently was awarded a three-year research grant from the National Institutes of Health to investigate the relations among food insecurity, obesity, and food impulsivity. You can also access some of Dr. Rasmussen's recently published studies.
