Title: Endocannabinoids and Stress: From Synapse to Pathology

Location:
Kraepelin Museum KRAE19

Host: Carsten Wotjak
Host Email: wotjak@psych.mpg.de
Abstract:
Endocannabinoids have been well established as regulators of the neurobehavioral response to stress. This talk will focus on highlighting the neural circuits and mechanisms by which endocannabinoids have been found to modulate both neuroendocrine and behavioral responses to stress, with an emphasis on translational implications of these findings to human populations afflicted with stress-related neuropsychiatric conditions, particularly anxiety disorders and PTSD.
