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, neural recordings). 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).
