Oscillatory substrates of fear and safety.
Oscillatory activity in the basolateral amygdala (BLA) is critical for emotional behavior. In this issue of Neuron, Stujenske et al. (2014) describe novel dynamics of BLA theta-gamma-coupled neuronal oscillations associated with conditioned and innate fear.
Members of the Unit contributed to the FENS Forum 2014 held in Milan, Italy.
Dr. Peter Magill presented a symposium lecture, entitled "Functional dichotomy in the striatal-pallidal axis".
Posters given by Unit members at the Forum include:
Bazelot, M., Bocchio, M., Fischer, D., Ferraguti, F., Capogna, M. (2014) Hippocampal theta mediates disinhibition of mouse amygdala principal cells via GABAB receptors.
Bocchio, M. & Capogna, M. (2014) Serotonin switches the firing mode of nitric oxide-expressing neurons of the mouse lateral amygdala.
