Development of PTSD Remedy based on the Molecular Mechanisms underlying Fear Memory Formation

Research Project Outline

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is triggered by a traumatic experience that is based on strong fear memory. This project aims to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying fear memory formation in animal models. Specifically,we will focus our attention on the molecular and cellular basis of reconsolidation and extinction of fear memory. Based on these results we also attempt to develop a theoretically novel PTSD remedy.
