Rebecca Shansky’s research investigates sexual dimorphism in fear circuitry using rodent models. Shansky’s lab integrates sophisticated behavioral analyses with high-resolution fluorescent microscopy to identify sex-specific patterns of fear expression, learning, and structural plasticity. She will discuss the challenges and surprises she’s encountered as a sex differences-focused behavioral neuroscientist, as well as her current advocacy for sex equity in animal research.
