Stephanie A. Maddox, PhD, is a research fellow in the Neurobiology of Fear Laboratory at McLean Hospital, where she is actively investigating the molecular and epigenetic mechanisms which underlie the formation of aversive fear memories.
Under the supervision of Kerry J. Ressler, MD, PhD, her research employs a combination of behavioral, pharmacological, and molecular manipulations to uncover the neurobiological underpinnings of fear memory formation and those mechanisms which are also critical for the alleviation or extinction of these memories. She hopes that her research will inform the development of novel treatment avenues to treat fear and anxiety disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
