We will develop cutting-edge techniques to:
- precisely measure and artificially manipulate the activity of CRH neurons in the PFC, and
- measure small and local releases of CRH by these neurons.
The success of our project will open the door to understand the neural mechanisms for how stress impairs cognitive functions and how it may contribute to mental disorders.
