Dr. Christa McIntyre Rodriguez received $498,116 from the the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for her research on Vagus Nerve Stimulation Targets Fear Pathways to Enhance Extinction of Conditioned Fear. Dr. McIntyre-Rodriguez uses exposure-based therapies to get rid of conditioned fears through repeated, unreinforced exposures to reminders of traumatic events. Her development of an effective adjunctive therapy aims to improve the tolerability of therapy for patients as well as help consolidate and maintain the extinction memory.
