    Research Interests

    Mood and anxiety disorders are more likely to occur in women, yet most mouse models focus on males. Using the monogamous California mouse we study the effects of stress on the brain and behavior. We find that social stress has different effects on social behavior and cognitive flexibility in males and females. We use histology, molecular biology and pharmacology to study how a variety of neurotrophin, neurotransmitter, and neuropeptide systems mediate behavioral responses to stress.
