Endocannabinoids, the Amygdala, and Anxiety
Sponsor(s): Neurobiology and Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
By the end of the session, learners should be able to:
1. Describe the mechanisms by which endocannabinoid signaling in the amygdala modulates anxiety in preclinical models.
2. Explain how endocannabinoid signaling regulates excitability of the amygdala in preclinical models.
3. Summarize how translational neuroscience has helped us to understand how endocannabinoid signaling regulates amygdala activation, stress and anxiety in humans.
