Behavioral profiles are strongly shaped by the individual's whole-life experience. Many studies in human and rodents alike suggest that an accumulation of negative encounters over lifetime (allostatic load hypothesis) is particularly detrimental since it is considered to promote anxiety-like behavior. On the contrary, overall positive experiences are thought to facilitate learning and resilience leaving the individual less vulnerable to develop an anxiety-like phenotype. The more recent ‘match/mismatch hypotheses’ is taking life phases into consideration by suggesting that a non-conformity between a beneficial early life and an adverse later-life environment leads to an increase in anxiety levels. However, a wholistic lifetime approach in mice is needed to understand how these over lifetime acquired behavioral profiles not only in- or decrease the susceptibility of the expression of anxiety-related behaviors, but especially how they shape fear memory and extinction learning in the adult mouse. My main research focuses on the investigation of life history effects on fear memory and extinction learning in mice.
