Interests

I am interested in the interactions between the amygdala/hippocampal circuit and different regions of the prefrontal cortex, particularly the anterior and posterior orbitofrontal cortex. My interest focuses on how these areas interact in emotional decision making, establishment of emotional memories and anxiety-like behaviours.
