Research in the Weinberg laboratory is focused on the investigation of how early life experiences alter brain and biological development. We have developed novel rodent models to examine brain-behavior relationships from prenatal life through adulthood. We also collaborate with Drs Grunau, Oberlander and colleagues to examine effects of early life experiences on human development. Overall, we are interested in how interactions between psychosocial and physiological events occurring early in development can produce long-term changes in hormonal, immune and behavioral function, and significantly alter vulnerability or increase resilience to diseases later in life.
