The Neurobiology of Stress

Weizmann - Max Planck Laboratory

We seek to provide insights into how brain function is disrupted in stress-related psychiatric and physiological disorders. We use diverse basic and translational research methods to identify molecular, neural, and behavioral signatures of these disorders. Through this integrative approach, we aim to improve understanding of how the brain copes with stress, which will ultimately improve our ability to design therapeutic interventions for stress-related mental and metabolic disorders. Our lab is an interdisciplinary research environment based in the Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel) and the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry (Germany).
