WELCOME

In our lab, we investigate a number of different issues related to behavioural neuroscience. Many, but not all, of the studies take a developmental perspective. We examine a broad range of topics, including the behavioural and neural processes involved in fear expression and inhibition, pharmacological adjuncts to enhance fear loss, and the effects of early life stress on physical and emotional development.

Our overarching aim is to gain a better understanding of learning and memory, and conduct our research in a way that has potential translational value for understanding anxiety disorders.
