Dr. Phillips’ research interests are broadly based within the field of preclinical neuropsychopharmacology and systems neuroscience.  He has published over 300 peer- reviewed articles and book chapters.  His pioneering research, with H.C. Fibiger, laid the foundation for the role of dopamine in the neural control of motivation and memory, with its clinical implications for understanding biological correlates of addiction. He has a long-standing interest in applying knowledge concerning normal brain-behaviour function to understanding the neural bases of mental illness and addiction.
