Jaclyn I. Wamsteeker Cusulin
I am interested in how stressful experiences recruit and shape brain circuits to impact physical and mental function. I completed a Bachelor's of Health Sciences at the University of Calgary. After spending time as a research assistant at Lund University, Sweden, I completed my PhD under the supervision of Dr. Jaideep Bains at the Hotchkiss Brain Institute, Calgary, studying how synaptic signaling in neuroendocrine neurons the hypothalamus subserves homeostatic regulation of stress hormones. Since April, 2014, I am a postdoctoral fellow working with Dr. Andreas Lüthi at the Friedrich Miescher Institute in Basel, Switzerland.
