My immediate objective is to develop my research in neuronal signalling complexes and apply what I find to unanswered fundamental questions related to memory and adaptive behaviour. In my research, I address the signalling requirements of memories associated with drugs of abuse, appetitive experience and also memories of fear. More recently, I have become interested in the relationship of fear and anxiety, and how the two maybe supported by neurochemically and anatomically distinct mechanisms.
