Davis earned his Ph.D. at Yale University. His research interests include the neurobiology of learning and memory using the fear-potentiated startle reflex in both rats and humans, with special emphasis on the role of the amygdala in emotion, as well as the role of peptides in the behavioral effects of stress.
