Michael J. Meaney Psychobiologist
Michael Meaney’s research interests lie in early environmental regulation of gene expression and brain development. He seeks to understand how early experience exerts a sustained influence on neuronal function. Meaney is also interested in the development of individual differences in behavioural and endocrine responses to stress, and environmental and neuroendocrine mechanisms influencing maternal behaviour.
