Jennifer Labus, PhD
Assistant Professor, UCLA Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA
Dr. Labus’s research focuses on mapping the neural networks underlying stress neurobiology with specific emphasis on models of visceral and functional pain and brain-body interactions. Specifically, she is examining altered central and autonomic nervous system processes in functional pain disorders, stress neurobiology, and the statistical methodology applied to interpret the complex data yielded by psychophysiological assessments such as fMRI, PET and acoustic startle response. Dr. Labus is delineating the neural networks involved in visceral pain and GI function using network analysis.
