Infant brain imaging research aims to help future studies identify differences in brain maturation in children with developmental disabilities.

Dr. Eisch is a neuroscientist interested in how molecular, cellular, and circuit changes—particularly in the limbic system—influence motivated behavior and cognition. She is specifically interested in how neuroplasticity in the hippocampal dentate gyrus contributes to both normal and pathological function with relevance to depression, addiction, neurodevelopmental disorders, and even space flight.
