Research Interests

Dr. Vonder Haar’s lab is, at its core, interested in the study of behavioral dysfunction in the context of neurological damage or disease. Insults to the brain, including traumatic brain injury and stroke, cause varied and complex behavioral deficits. The Vonder Haar lab uses rodent models and sophisticated behavioral techniques in order to probe at deficits revolving around impulsivity, attention, and decision-making and evaluate potential therapeutics.
