Welcome

Stress is associated with the onset and severity of a number of psychiatric illnesses, including mood and anxiety disorders. Although all of us experience stress, not everyone goes on to develop these disorders. The Neuroendocrinology and Behavior Laboratory (NBL) uses a variety of techniques from behavioral neuroscience, neuroendocrinology, and cellular and molecular biology to identify biological mechanisms that confer vulnerability or resilience to stress and stress-related psychiatric disorders.

Specific interests of our research include:

  • Stress effects on attention and other cognitive processes
  • Sex differences in stress-related receptors
  • Gonadal hormone modulation of stress response systems throughout the lifespan

Our lab can be found in Weiss Hall on the Main Campus.
