Caroline Quoilin

PhD, Post-Doctoral Researcher

caroline quoilin 140x180Caroline completed a PhD in Psychological Sciences at the University of Liege as well as a postdoctoral fellowship at the department of Addiction Neuroscience of the University-Purdie Indianapolis University, where her research focused on the developmental and neurobiological bases of alcohol abuse and dependence. Caroline joined the CoActions lab in July 2014 and, since then, has been mainly investigating the contribution of deficient motor inhibitory mechanisms in addiction, and especially in alcohol-dependence.
