The BDNF system as mediator for stress impaired fear acquisition, extinction and late fear

Lange, Andreatta

The aim of project B08 is to analyze the role of the BDNF dependent neuronal mechanisms between paraventricular nucleus of the thalamus (PVT), the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST), and the central amygdala (CeA), causative for stress-dependent long-lasting fear in a combined mouse-human study.
