Schulz Lab

The Schulz Lab (Kalynn Schulz, PI) is interested in how environmental events shape the developing nervous system and adult behavior. In particular, we use rodent models to investigate the mechanisms by which developmental stress exposure and deviations in pubertal timing confer risk for mental illness.
