Dubois, Dustin Assistant Professor

Positions

My recent research interests have focused on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms governing the interaction between a wide array of Neuropsychopharmacological agents and their respective receptors. My past research has focused on understanding 1.) the neuroteratogenic effects of ethanol on the GABAergic inhibitory neurotransmitter system, 2.) the chronic effects of ethanol on excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitter systems in brain areas regulating anxiety-like behaviors, and 3) the effects of anesthetic agents on learning and memory mechanisms in the hippocampal region of the brain. My lab is also interested in understanding the impact of various pharmacological and environmental agents such as ethanol, benzodiazepines, pesticides, and chemical pollutants on central nervous system development.
