Professor Peter Tse with graduate students in the MRI lab.

Armin is also a recipient of the prestigious Stamps Scholarship, which provides $20,000 for two years to juniors and seniors to pursue an experiential learning plan. The program requires students to have an original research question that they wish to investigate.

As a Stamps Scholar, I am conducting a series of experiments that employ cutting-edge neuroscience methods to investigate the development and reduction of fear. It is known that severe traumatic experiences, including but not limited to sexual abuse and battle exposure, result in development of PTSD. It is estimated that 5.2 million U.S adults suffer from PTSD during the course of a given year. Patients with PTSD are often unable to interpret their surroundings to distinguish between safe and threatening stimuli, and thus experience episodes of intense disabling fear following exposure to a safe stimulus. Previous research has shown a significantly diminished level of retrosplenial cortex (RSC) activity in patients with PTSD, but no studies to date have examined the causal nature of this linkage, primarily due to lack of an established methodology to do so. By employing several state-of-the-art technologies including fiber photometry and Designer Receptors Exclusively Activated by Designer Drugs (DREADDs), I am investigating the role of RSC in fear learning, hoping to further our understanding of the neural mechanisms related to PTSD.

Psychology is projected to grow 14 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than average for all occupations Median pay for Psychology in 2018 was 95710$. The number of jobs were 13310.
