Dr. Rohleder's main research interest is the interaction between the central nervous system with the periphery of the body. More specifically, research focuses on how state or trait changes in central nervous system activity affect biomedical health through efferent signaling pathways. For example, current projects address the question whether and how repeated stress exposure during the lifespan can lead to cumulative organ damage and thus accelerate the aging process.
