ELUCIDATING THE NEUROBIOLOGAL SUBSTRATES OF MEMORY & EMOTION
A few questions our research seeks to answer include:
Which circuits co-control both learned and innate fear?
What network, circuits, and genes control the strength of learned fear memories?
Do brain-wide molecular networks exhibit a topological structure that represents learned fear differently than innate fear?
Are there key hub genes within these topologically-structured molecular networks that intrinsically differentiate between learned and innate fears?
Our lab uses a variety of research techniques to answer the questions above, find out more about many of these techniques below.
(soon to be curated by members of the lab)
