Daniel Miller, Ph.D., was a graduate student of Dr. Joseph Steinmetz at Indiana University from 1989 to 1994. While in the Steinmetz lab, his research focused on the function of the hippocampus in rabbit eyeblink conditioning and the neural substrates of appetitive and aversive signaled leverpressing in rats.

Currently his research interests involve the function of the amygdala in stress vulnerable rats using the signaled leverpress avoidance task. In collaboration with Dr. Richard Servatius of the Stress and Motivated Behavior Institute at the Office of Veterans Affairs in East Orange NJ, Dr. Miller and his students are using selective lesion and temporary innactivation techniques to study how discreet areas of the amygdala contribute to facilitated avoidance learning in stress vulnerable rats compared to outbred controls.

Dr. Miller and his students at the Carthage Neuroscience Laboratory regularly present at the annual meetings of the Society for Neuroscience and Pavlovian Society. He joined the Carthage faculty in 1994.
