How can fish help us understand PTSD?

Adam Crane

Adam Crane, Concordia’s latest Banting postdoctoral fellow, is set to investigate just what exactly fish behaviour has to do with PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder.

Crane will join behavioural ecology professor Grant Brown from the Department of Biology to try to better understand how social influences interact with fear and fear recovery.

Crane’s research looks at predator avoidance among freshwater fish in environments with a high level of predation risk and compares these findings to humans with PTSD.
