Sarah Gonzalez is a fifth year graduate student in the Fanselow lab. Her work focuses on how stress impacts learning and memory processes. Disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) often involve enhanced fear learning following trauma exposure. She is interested in how stress alters the neural circuitry underlying fear learning. Additionally, she is interested in the factors that promote susceptibility versus resilience to the effects of stress.
