The university community is invited to join NeuroCAST & TNI for a special seminar with guest speaker, Marie Monfils, PhD, professor of Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin.
The talk will be held virtually on Thursday, March 25, 2021 from 1 to 2 p.m. Dr. Monfils will present, “Assessing Individual Differences to Optimize Fear Attenuation.”
Marie Monfils received her Ph.D. in behavioral neuroscience from the Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience, under the supervision of Bryan Kolb and Jeffrey Kleim, and her Master’s degree from the University of Calgary with Cam Teskey. She conducted a postdoctoral fellowship at New York University in Joseph LeDoux’s lab.
Dr. Monfils is currently pursuing two main research streams: (1) investigating post-consolidation manipulations that can persistently attenuate fear memories, and (2) disambiguating factors that affect the social transmission of information between conspecifics.
