Hammack Laboratory

hammack Director Sayamwong (Jom) Hammack, Ph.D.
Location Room 438 John Dewey Hall
Website Hammack Laboratory of Behavioral Neuroscience
Areas Research in the Hammack laboratory examines the neurobiology of emotion and emotional learning, with a particular interest in the role of peptide systems and serotonin in the regulation of fear and anxiety behavior. We are also interested in factors that determine the behavioral consequences of exposure to stressful or threatening stimuli, such as controllability and exercise, and the brain mechanisms by which these treatments alter behavior.
Graduate Students Olivia Miles, Bradley King, Galen Missig (also in Victor May's laboratory)
Postdoctoral Fellows Kimberly Lezak, Ph.D.

Toufexis Laboratory

molocule Director Donna Toufexis, Ph.D.
Location Room 430 John Dewey Hall
Areas Sex differences and sex hormone effects on emotional learning and anxiety behavior; development of animal models of endocrine-related psychopathologies including post-traumatic stress disorder and post-partum depression.
Graduate Students Harold Bauerle, Olga Lipatova & Vincenzo Piraino
