Abstract

Classical fear conditioning is one of the most powerful models for studying the neuronal substrates of associative learning and for investigating how plasticity in defined neuronal circuits causes behavioral changes. In my talk, I will focus on the organization and function of the neuronal circuitry of fear and discuss how functionally, anatomically and genetically defined types of amygdala neurons contribute to the acquisition and expression of conditioned fear behavior.
