Bio

Dr. Radulovic studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms by which memories of stressful events contribute to anxiety- and depression-like behavior. Specifically, her interests lies in neuronal receptors, signal transduction pathways and gene responses mediating: (i) formation and extinction of aversive memory; (ii) delayed enhancement of fear memory in the aftermath of stressful experiences; (iii) social modeling of fear; and (iv) the relationship between aversive memories and depression. ...[Read full text]Dr. Radulovic studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms by which memories of stressful events contribute to anxiety- and depression-like behavior. Specifically, her interests lies in neuronal receptors, signal transduction pathways and gene responses mediating: (i) formation and extinction of aversive memory; (ii) delayed enhancement of fear memory in the aftermath of stressful experiences; (iii) social modeling of fear; and (iv) the relationship between aversive memories and depression. Dr. Radulovic's long-term goal is to elucidate the key brain mechanisms linking cognitive and emotional processes and identify novel targets for treatment of anxiety and depression.[Shorten text]
