Research information:

Critical periods of development are marked by important physiological and neural changes. These changes shape behavior and set the stage for the vulnerability of diseases in adulthood. Exposure to stressors during these critical periods can have profound long-lasting effects on brain function and can increase the risk of psychopathology later in life. While it is possible to reduce exposure to certain environmental stressors, other stressors, such as sickness, are almost unavoidable. My research interests are to investigate the neurochemical mechanisms through which immune challenge and hormones during the prenatal and pubertal periods alter behavior. The behavioral outcomes that I am examining are social behaviors, depression and cognition. I use small rodents, such as laboratory mice and rats, to gain mechanistic insight into these questions.

Research information:

 

Our first line of work focuses around the brain circuits involved in Depression.  In particular, Our research focuses on determining how stressors influence brain functioning and behavior. We are attempting to identify factors (genetic, neurochemical & psychosocial) that render individuals vulnerable to mental illness and those factors that impart resiliency. Our second line of research focuses on identifying plant derived medications that may attenuate stress, anxiety and depressive responses.

Research information:

My main field of research is targeting the salt-sensitive high blood pressure. This particular kind of high blood pressure has been connected with a genetic component that is inherited from parents to offspring and that is usually exacerbated by high salt-intake. As a Geneticist Candidate and a Pharmacist, I am investigating the genes that might be involved in transmitting that genetic form of high blood pressure.
