Research Areas research areas


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).


  • Neuroanatomical basis of stress and anxiety

courses taught

  • NRSC 2100 - Introduction to Neuroscience
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2018 / Fall 2018 / Summer 2019 / Fall 2019 / Summer 2020 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2021 / Summer 2022
    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 2125 - Introduction to Neuroscience I: Foundations
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2022 / Summer 2023 / Fall 2023
    Provides an introduction to fundamental knowledge and principles in neuroscience. The goal of this first semester of an Introduction to Neuroscience two semester sequence is to provide a strong foundation in neurobiology-cell biology, physiology of the neuronal membrane, synaptic neurotransmission, neurochemistry, gross anatomy and introduction to sensory perception. Recitation will reinforce lecture concepts.
  • NRSC 4011 - Senior Thesis
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
    Senior Thesis credits are available for students during the semester that they write and defend a departmental Honors Thesis. A neuroscience honors thesis must be based on an empirical research project that the student directs/participates in under guidance from a faculty member. Contact the neuroscience director for further information.
  • 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 / Spring 2021 / Spring 2022 / Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
    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.
  • NRSC 6602 - Behavioral Neuroscience Professional Skills Development
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
    Enrolled graduate students in the behavioral neuroscience program will be asked to prepare, present and receive feedback on scientific presentations of their own research or from review of a current research project.
