Team:
Interactions between emotions and memory systems: from normal to pathological aging

Domain:

Research axis:

  • Neurophysiology of adaptive and maladaptive behaviours

Scientific expertise:

  • Electrophysiology in vitro and in vivo
  • Multisite recordings in freely moving mice and rats

  • synaptic plasticity; long term potentiation; long term depression
  • memory and memory system; fear conditioning and fear extinction
  • hippocampus; amygdala; prefrontal cortex.

Projects:

  • Amygdala modulation of hippocampal subregions: role in stress related disorders
  • Amygdala and hippocampus interactions in aging
  • Prefrontal cortex, amygdala and accumbens interactions in resilience to stress
