    Research/Clinical Interests:

  • Dr. Herman's major research interests include structural, functional and molecular biological principles underlying brain stress integration.

    Research Description: The brain is at the center of a complex physiological process orchestrating secretion of stress hormones. Integration of the stress response occurs by way of a defined array of central stress-integrative neurons, which initiate a neuroendocrine cascade resulting in steroid secretion by the adrenal glands.

    Dr. Herman's laboratory is geared toward examining the relationship between the physiological actions of central nervous system stress circuits and their place in the central nervous system.

    Present studies focus on:
    1) limbic system regulation of the stress response and, consequently, on the generation of stress-related disorders, ranging from major depressive illness to essential hypertension to neurodegeneration and aging, and

    2) defining the role of central adrenocorticosteroid receptors in transducing stress-related signals in normal physiology, aging and disease states.

    Experimental approaches include in situ hybridization, RNAse protection and PCR methods for localizing and quantifying gene expression and mRNA levels in identified neuronal populations; immunoautoradiography, Western blot and gel mobility shift assays for assessing regulation and functional integrity of stress-related proteins; and combinations of in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry and tract-tracing for establishing the biochemical signatures of defined circuits within the brain-stress axis.

    Future Projects
    - Functional reorganization of neurotransmission in stress and disease
    - Altered glucocorticoid signaling in brain aging and affective illness
