Research

research overview

  • Dr. Campeau's research is focused on determining the brain circuits associated with stress and anxiety, and how stress can be diminished when the same challenging situations are experienced repeatedly (habituation to stress). This is done in laboratory animals using a variety of anatomical and functional techniques to discover the brain areas that are closely associated with specific stress responses (endocrine, autonomic, and behavioral responses).

Teaching

courses taught

  • NRSC 2100 - Introduction to Neuroscience
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2018 / Fall 2018 / Summer 2019 / Fall 2019
    Provides an introduction to fundamental concepts in neuroscience. The goal of this first course is to provide a strong foundation in neurobiology-cell biology, physiology of the neuronal membrane, interneuronal communication, neurotransmission, gross anatomy, and how the brain develops. Students will also learn principles of sensory systems functions. Recitation will reinforce lecture concepts through discussion of current research.
  • NRSC 5100 - Introduction to Neuroscience I
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    This first course in the year-long sequence of introduction to neuroscience provides an intensive introduction to the principles of neuroscience, covering detailed neuroanatomy, physiology, neurophysiology, neurochemical and developmental characteristics of the central nervous system. Structure-function relationships in sensory and motor systems are then explored with neuroanatomical and electrophysiological perspectives. Recommended requisite, restricted to interdepartmental Neuroscience Program or instructor consent required.
  • NRSC 5110 - Introduction to Neuroscience II
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019 / Spring 2020
    Provides an intensive interdisciplinary introduction to the principles of neuroscience. It is a sequel to NRSC 5100. Provides a detailed overview of neurochemistry, neurodevelopment, neuromotor control, neurogenetics, and cognitive neuroscience. Open to undergraduates with instructor permission.
  • NRSC 5262 - Mammalian Neuroanatomy
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Provides a detailed overview of peripheral and central nervous system connectional neuroanatomy targeted at delineating functional sensory, motor and motivational systems and the control of behavior and cognition. Emphasizes histological, anatomical and functional techniques employed in investigations of the nervous system. Formerly PSYC 5262.
  • PSYC 4011 - Senior Thesis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019 / Spring 2020
    Critically reviews some aspect of psychological literature, scholarly analysis of a major psychological issue, and/or empirical research project. See the psychology honors director for further information.
