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. For example, some studies examine whether the behavioural and neural processes involved in the expression or the inhibition of learned fear differ across age. Other studies explore the effects of early life stress on the maturation of the circuits involved in the expression and/or inhibition of learned fear. Yet other studies explore potential pharmacological adjuncts for enhancing the loss of fear. In all of these studies, our overarching aims are to gain a better understanding of learning and memory processes, and to do this in a way that might have potential translational value for understanding anxiety disorders in humans.
