Postdoctoral Fellow, Mount Sinai School of Medicine
Dr. Kennedy is part of the Nestler laboratory. The Nestler lab works to better understand the molecular mechanisms of addiction and depression. They use animal models of these disorders to identify the ways in which long-term exposure to drugs of abuse or stress changes the brain to lead to addiction- or depression-like syndromes. A major focus of this work is on drug- and stress-induced changes in gene expression and chromatin structure within the brain's reward circuitry.
This event is part of the Neuroscience & Education program's
Neuroscience Lecture Series. Some of the most accomplished investigators
in neuroscience from top universities in the NYC area will be
presenting new developments in their leading-edge research on the
