EPFL Neuro Symposium // Fear learning: from neuronal circuits to translation


Event details

Date 25.11.2019 26.11.2019  
Category Conferences - Seminars

Anxiety disorders are widespread in the human population. At the same time, the behavioral paradigm of fear learning offers researchers a platform to investigate the neuronal circuit basis of emotionally motivated learning behaviors, exploiting state-of-the-art optic- and genetic approaches in mice. Understanding the fundamental molecular, cellular- and circuit mechanisms of fear learning will form the basis for an improved treatment of anxiety in the future. The Symposium brings together researchers investigating fundamental mechanisms of fear learning and of fear reversal, as well as researchers working on translational aspects of fear learning.
