Understanding the role of the neuropeptide Tac2 in aggressive behavior post acute stressor.

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Preliminary research results found by Zelikowsky's lab showed that the activation of Tac2 neurons induced aggression in the absence of stress. Other results showed that Tac2 expression promoted aggressive behavior post chronic social isolation stress. My research is focused on the inhibition of Tac2 neurons post acute stress. This research strengthens the theory of Tac2 prominent role in increased aggressivity in individuals following stressors.
