Monday, September 28th Meeting – “Neuroscience of Fear”

Neuroscience of Fear: Dr. Rebecca Shansky


When: Monday, September 28th, 7:00 P.M.
Where: 106 WVG (West Village G)

Listen and enjoy some PIZZA



Dr. Rebecca Shansky is a professor and on-campus researcher of the neurobiological basis of fear. Here’s a sneak peek of some of the awesome stuff going on in theShansky lab:

“Our research focuses on the neural connections between the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) and the amygdala, and sex differences in how this circuit processes fear and responds to stress. The mPFC and amygdala are frequently reported to be sites of dysfunction in stress-related mental illnesses like Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), the symptoms of which may be a result of abnormal cross-talk between the two regions. Since women are twice as likely as men to develop these disorders, relevant research in female animals is particularly important..”  – Dr. Shansky


Hope to see you there!
