Travis P. Todd

Research Assistant Professor

My research investigates the basic mechanisms of learning, memory, and behavior, by combining associative learning theory with several approaches to manipulate neural activity in rodents (e.g., permanent lesions, viral-mediated gene delivery technology). I believe that basic research on these fundamental processes will ultimately inform our understanding and treatment of human pathologies such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
