Dr. Travis Hodges

Postdoctoral Fellow


Dr. Travis Hodges is a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Liisa Galea (Laboratory of Behavioural Neuroendocrinology).

Research interests include the impact of repeated stress and altered experiences in critical periods of development on hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal function, behavioural function, and neural function. Moreover, the transmittance of behavioural and neural function from parent to offspring. Specifically, he is interested in (1) the effect of maternal depression on cognitive dysfunctions in the offspring and mechanisms underlying those cognitive dysfunctions, (2) age and sex differences in the onset of behavioural change after stressors in early-life and in the mechanisms underlying the behavioural change, and (3) the role of hippocampal neurogenesis in cognitive dysfunction and other behavioural changes in vulnerable populations.
