Dr. Campeau received his Ph.D. in Psychology from Yale University in 1993. He was awarded a Post-doctoral 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 has since joined the Department of Psychology at the Boulder Campus of the University of Colorado.

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 functions.
