  1. Nicotinic-dopamine receptor interaction in a novel Parkinsonian mouse model.
    ANDREW TAPPER; Fiscal Year: 2009
    ..In addition, this mouse model should help elucidate underlying neuronal mechanisms important for voluntary movement in normal and diseased states. ..
  2. Neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors and the response to alcohol
    Andrew R Tapper; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..The insights gained from this project should help identify molecular targets for alcohol cessation therapeutics. ..
