Title: The Neurobiology of Psychiatric Phenotypes Modelled in Mice

Abstract: Our research focuses on the neurobiological mechanisms by which stressful experiences are represented in hippocampal-cortical brain circuits. This presentation will summarize findings from translationally-relevant models of maladaptive behavioral phenotypes associated with stress-related memories and highlight newly identified, unexpected mechanisms contributing to the specificity and persistence of stress-related memories. These mechanisms highlight the role of ciliogenesis in integrating genomic responses of neurons to synaptic activity with the build-up of adjacent perineuronal nets.
