Behavioral Neuroendocrinology Lab (Trainor)

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.

The lab studies how social stress affects behavior in male and female California mice (Peromyscus californicus). Current research investigates how sex differences in neurobiological responses to stress mediate long-term behavioral changes, such as social withdrawal.
