My research focuses on understanding the changes in the molecular profile of neurons during memory formation. The amygdala is a critical area involved in fear memory formation. By using genetic and bioinformatic approaches I will probe the translational changes of interneurons and projection neurons in the amygdala during the formation of fear memories.
