Dr. Gosselink's neuroendocrine physiology research laboratory investigates the central and systemic effects of acute and chronic stress, with a focus on: a) stress-induced activation in the brain; b) contributions of chronic stress to health disorders such as addiction, cognitive decline and/or neurodegeneration, obesity and diabetes, depression/PTSD, and cancer; c) gender differences in stress responses; and d) the mechanisms and protective effects of exercise on neuroendocrine and behavioral function. Dr. Gosselink is also beginning to engage in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) with students in neuroscience and physiology.
