Emma BurrowsEmma Burrows is a behavioural neuroscientist at The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, which is the largest brain research group in the Southern Hemisphere. Her research project include novel behavioural phenotypes in the Neuroligin 3 Knockin mouse model of autism, and characterising gene-environment interactions in mouse models relevant to psychiatric illness. In the past she has supervised Faith Lamont – Utilising Touchscreen technology for preclinical modelling of cognition in brain disease and Liliana Laskaris – Investigating social behaviours in the Neuroligin 3 mouse model of Autism.

Some of her recent works include:

  • Burrows, E.L, & Hannan, A.J. (2012) Towards environmental construct validity in animal models of CNS disorders: Optimizing translation of preclinical studies. CNS & Neurological Disorder-Drug Targets.
  • Burrows, E.L. and Hannan, A.J. (2012) Characterizing social behavior in genetically targeted mouse models of brain disorders. Methods Mol. Biol.
  • Burrows, E.L., McOmish., C.E., & Hannan, A.J. (2011) Gene–environment interactions and construct validity in preclinical models of psychiatric disorders. Progress in Neuro-Psychopharmacology & Biological Psychiatry. 35(6):1376-82.
