Research Interests: 
I am interested in how emotion impacts physiology and ultimately modulates responses to the environment.
Research Summary: 
I study how the brain generates and expresses emotional states. Currently, my research centers on how the amygdala processes tactile stimulation. Touch can be a potent stimulus for eliciting emotional responses but the way in which animals process the affective component of touch is largely unknown. Alterations in the way touch is perceived is also a common feature of mental and developmental disorders (e.g., autism). To help further our understanding of the affective processing of touch, our lab is exploring how the amygdala responds to a variety of tactile stimuli delivered to various locations on the face or body.
