Dr. Campeau is a Professor in the Department of Psychology
and Neuroscience and the Director of the Interdepartmental
Neuroscience PhD Program. He received his PhD in Psychology from Yale University
in 1993. He was awarded a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
from the Medical Research Council of Canada, which he held
in the laboratory of Professor Stanley J. Watson at the Mental
Health Research Institute of the University of Michigan until
August 1999. He then joined the faculty at CU Boulder.
Dr. Campeau's main research interests revolve around the
determination of the brain systems responsible for the perception
of stress. Related problems such as how repeated stress influence
the general physical and psychological health and disease
of humans and animals are important foci of his research.
Another area of interest includes the general problem of learning
and memory, and how the brain achieves these very important
