Neuro-Epigenetics of Stress and Cognition Research Group

Organisational unit: Research Grouping

Organisation profile

My research group investigates how the organism responds and adapts to stressful events.

Major research interests

  1. The signalling, epigenetic and genomic mechanisms in the brain underlying stress-related learning and memory processes.
  2. The regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis under baseline and stress conditions.
  3. The physiological and neurobiological mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of voluntary exercise on stress coping, HPA axis regulation, and anxiety-related and cognitive behaviour.
