Animal Learning Laboratory

The primary research program for the Animal Learning and Cognition Laboratory addresses the origins and underpinnings of anxiety using an animal model of phobic disorder. In order to better understand the governing principles of currently available forms of treatment, we study various treatment paradigms in a rat model in an attempt isolate the controlling factors for further study.  Our hope is that this research will lead to more efficacious and well-understood treatments for the anxiety disorders.
