Welcome to the Debiec Lab at University of Michigan!

Our goal is to understand the brain mechanisms of affective processes in health and disease. We are especially focused on early infant attachment learning, fear, anxiety and emotional trauma. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, including innovative behavioral protocols, functional anatomy techniques, viral vectors, electrophysiology and pharmacological manipulations, our group works on identifying brain systems and cellular mechanisms critical for these processes. Applying findings from basic studies, we are also involved in clinical studies aimed at developing novel treatment and preventive methods.
