Learning and memory, fear, extinction, adolescence, d-cycloserine, retrieval-extinction, calcium.

My research examines how fear is inhibited in the adolescent brain. Adolescence is a period of increased vulnerability to anxiety disorders and the brain undergoes substantial maturation during adolescence, particularly in the prefrontal cortex (PFC), a region critical for inhibiting fear in adults. I am interested in how adolescents may be less efficient in utilising prefrontal regions to inhibit fear.
