Title: Investigating how stress and diet influence neuropsychiatric-relevant behaviors

 

Abstract: My current research projects are evaluating how dietary manipulations and stressful experiences in rodents influence emotional behaviors relevant to neuropsychiatric disorders.  I am examining how these disruptions influence or interact with functional differences in transporter proteins that regulating monoamine signaling (e.g., dopamine).  My talk will describe how these ongoing investigations form the foundation for projects I will continue pursuing in my independent lab.
