I am an advanced student in the Emory Neuroscience Ph.D. program. I work in Dr. Rainnie's lab at Yerkes National Primate Research Center, where we study the neural bases of emotion. More specifically, the lab focuses on circuitry of the amygdala and related structures that underlie the processing of fear and anxiety. I run the in vivo side of the lab, recording spikes and local field potentials from multiple electrodes in the basolateral amygdala and medial prefrontal cortex of freely moving rats. We are also collaborating with Dr. Helen Mayberg to investigate the mechanisms of subgenual cingulate (Cg25) deep brain stimulation for treatment-resistant depression.
