Addiction division has three research tracks: 1-Impulsivity, automatism and motivation. Our group studies common mechanisms underlying addictive disorders (e.g. impulsivity and automatism as risk factors for development and maintenance of addictive behaviors). Our main objective is to develop and enhance treatment strategies. 2-Behavioral addictions and related disorders. We are also involved in several behavioral addictions research projects. They mainly focus on pathological gambling, excessive use of new information technologies (Internet, smart phones and similar electronic devices). These new addictive disorders are raising controversies in scientific community and clinical evidence is lacking. Our research activities tend to provide epidemiological, psychopathological and clinical data in the field. 3-Global Mental Health in addiction medicine. In collaboration with WHO, our team is involved in screening tools development and dissemination. We also participate to global data collection and publication on prevention and treatment strategies (e.g. WHO global survey 2014).
