We are investigating how brain networks interact with the environment to affect behavioral and health outcomes. One project investigates how mechanisms of estrogen-dependent aggressive behavior are modulated by light cycles. A second project examines sex differences in behavioral and neurobiological responses to social stress. We use multiple approaches to examining mechanisms of behavior including hormone and pharmacological manipulations, immunohistochemistry, western blot, real-time PCR, and microarray analyses.
