Talk Title: The amygdala circuits in the regulation of divergent behaviors
Brain & Behaviour Seminar Series 2017-2018
Reception to follow in room 4043 Sidney Smith Hall, 100 St. George Street
The amygdala is essential for learning and expression of behavioral responses driven by either reward or aversive stimuli. How exactly distinct amygdala circuits contribute to the generation of such divergent behavioral responses remains unclear. Our recent studies in mice indicate that aversive stimulus-driven learning and stress induces distinct plastic changes indistributed amygdala circuits, including those in the extended amygdala. These changes may underlie specific learning processes or behavioral responses. Here I will report our recent findings regarding the cellular and circuit mechanisms underlying some of the behavioral roles of the amygdala.
