Behavioral Effects of Trauma Recruit Separate Populations of Ventral Hippocampal Neurons

Semester: Spring 2024

Presentation description

Trauma has been reported to affect over 70% of all adults worldwide. Exactly how these traumatic events are encoded in the brain is poorly understood. This project aims to test the hypothesis that distinct populations of neurons in the ventral hippocampus encode individual behavioral effects of trauma as well as discover the extent of overlap between neuronal cells activated by trauma-induced aggression vs. trauma-altered sociability.
