Areas of Specialization and Scholarly Activity

Dr. Schalomon’s teaching interests are primarily in the area of behavioural neuroscience and more broadly, the biological bases of behaviour. She has taught courses on topics related to neuroanatomy, neuropsychology, and human sexuality, in addition to introductory level courses in Psychology. Her current program of research is focused on the neurochemical bases of anxiety and conditioning in zebrafish (Danio rerio) employing computerized motion tracking of fish behaviour. Dr. Schalomon has previously published research on mice (experimental neurogenetics and neurosurgery, cerebral lateralization), rats (experimental neurosurgery, prefrontal cortex), and humans (sexuality in adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder).
