Dunbar Laboratory for Research on Memory and Fear

The Dunbar Lab for Research on Memory and Fear, housed within the Asher Center for the Study and Treatment of Depressive Disorders, studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms by which memories of stressful events contribute to anxiety- and depression-like behavior. Our interest lies in neuronal receptors, signal transduction pathways and gene responses related to memory and fear.

For information about the work done at our lab, see the Dunbar Lab page within the Asher Center site.
