RESEARCH INTEREST

My group is interested in the impact of the brain arginine-vasopressin and corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) systems on maternal behavior in rodents with special focus on maternal neglect. Furthermore, in collaboration with Prof. Larry Young, Emory University, Atlanta (USA), we aim to investigate the dysregulation/interactions of the oxytocin and CRF systems following loss of the pair bonded partner in monogamous male and female prairie voles.
