My research group investigates how the organism responds and adapts to stressful events.
Major research interests
- The signalling, epigenetic and genomic mechanisms in the brain underlying stress-related learning and memory processes.
- The regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis under baseline and stress conditions.
- The physiological and neurobiological mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of voluntary exercise on stress coping, HPA axis regulation, and anxiety-related and cognitive behaviour.
