Siobhan Robinson , PhD

Siobhan Robinson conducts research across a wide range of neuroscience subfields.  Her animal-based research employs both classical and innovative techniques to investigate the neuroanatomy and the neurochemistry underlying goal-directed, but maladaptive learning, memory and motivation. The ultimate goal of the research is to better understand the neurobiology underlying behavioral and cognitive deficits such as those observed in persons with substance dependence, anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Dr. Robinson earned Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Washington and is an Associate Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Hamilton College.
