Chris Newland explores the behavioral impact of drugs and environmental contaminants that act on the brain. A life-span development approach is threaded through his research, so he has examined early development, aging and, more recently, adolescence, all in experimental models. He draws from the experimental analysis of behavior, environmental health, psychopharmacology, and especially quantitative models of behavior, to explore how the neural consequences of drug and toxicant exposure are expressed behaviorally. His research is funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.
Newland sits on the editorial board of the Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, Perspectives on Behavior Science, Policy Insights from the Behavioral and Brain Sciences, Neurotoxicology (where he is an associate editor), and Neurotoxicology and Teratology. He served on the neurotoxicology and alcohol study section on an NIH grant review panel. He was awarded the APA’s Division 25 Award for Distinguished Contributions to Behavior Analysis and Auburn University's Creative Scholarship Award. He is a fellow of the Association for Behavior Analysis International and is a member of the ABAI Council.
