Welcome to the Jacobs Lab

The Jacobs Lab is dedicated to advancing our understanding of how sex steroid hormones shape the neural circuitry underlying higher order cognitive functions. This includes defining the role of sex steroids in the healthy adult brain and, in turn, exploring how the decline in hormone production during reproductive aging influences specific neural circuits. We use a multi-tier approach that includes fMRI, molecular PET imaging, neuroendocrinology and imaging genetics.
