Dr. McEwen studies environmentally-regulated, variable gene expression in brain mediated by circulating steroid hormones and endogenous neurotransmitters in relation to brain sexual differentiation and the actions of sex, stress and thyroid hormones on the adult brain. Dr. McEwen combines molecular, anatomical, pharmacological, physiological and behavioral methodologies and makes an effort to relate his findings to human clinical information.
