• Neural circuits for fear extinction and retrieval
• Context-dependence of fear memory
To understand the brain circuits and cellular mechanisms underlying the extinction and retrieval of fear memory using Pavlovian fear conditioning in rats. To identify the neurobiological basis of fear memory, I use a variety of behavioral, pharmacological and chemogenetic technologies to study the role of a neural circuit including hippocampus, prefrontal cortex, amygdala and midline thalamus.
