“When people are stressed-out they tend to want immediate rewards for their actions, and this can lead to impulsive behaviors. I think this may be linked to the function of the prefrontal cortex, an area of the brain involved in working memory and decision making. My lab will investigate this part of the brain to determine the effects of stress on decision-making at the cellular level.”
