Hammack Laboratory
Room 438 John Dewey Hall Jom Hammack, Director

Research in the Hammack laboratory examines the neurobiology of emotion and emotional learning, with a particular interest in the role of serotonin systems in the modulation 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.
