Organisation profile

My research group investigates neurochemical and neuroendocrine mechanisms in the brain that support coping with stress. We have a particular interest in the role of GABA and serotonin in the regulation of the neuroendocrine and behavioural responses to stress.

Furthermore, we study the distinct regulation of free glucocorticoid levels under baseline and stress conditions. Our research is funded by the BBSRC, Wellcome Trust and Neuroendocrinology Charitable Trust.
