Dr. Reagan is Vice-Chair and Professor of Pharmacology, Physiology & Neuroscience at The University of South Carolina. His group research interest in determining the underlying structural, neurochemical, and functional changes produced by stress in the hippocampus to achieve a greater understanding of how these alterations may contribute to the development of cognitive impairments in a variety of clinical situations, including recurrent depressive illness—examining the effects of metabolic stressors like diabetes and obesity on hippocampal neuroplasticity. His ongoing studies are examining the ability of pharmacological and lifestyle interventions to restore hippocampal neuroplasticity in experimental models of stress, diabetes, and obesity.
