Behavioral Neuroendocrinology Laboratory


"Our laboratory investigates the cellular and behavioral changes in response to exposure to natural and synthetic androgens. We are currently studying effects of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) on anxiety, reproductive behaviors and energy metabolism. Cellular substrates such as neuropeptides and neurotransmitters present in the hypothalamus and amygdala are possible candidates for modulation by AAS. Experiments are done both in vivo and in vitro. Results will provide novel information to understand the behavioral consequences of AAS induce cellular regulation from adolescents to adults."

Laboratory of Fear Learning


Our lab studies the mechanisms of emotional regulation using extinction of conditioned fear. Much of what is known about extinction comes from animal models using Pavlovian fear conditioning. We found that a subregion of the prefrontal cortex, the infralimbic cortex (IL), is necessary for extinction (fear inhibition). Moreover, we found that another mPFC subregion, the prelimbic cortex (PL), is necessary for fear expression. We suggest that IL inhibits fear by inhibiting amygdala output, whereas PL drives fear by increasing amygdala output. In addition to our rat studies, we are now studying fear in humans, with the goal of developing new treatments for anxiety disorders.
