Cross-Cutting Theme Program

Rat Tales Demonstrating That ‘LIFE’, as an Independent Variable, Influences Neurobiology

Saturday, May 24, 2014, 1:00 PM - 1:35 PM
Imperial Ballroom B

Much like the description of this symposium, many of us were implicitly taught to believe that biological/genetic vulnerabilities influence behavior. The directionality of this function matters. Using examples from our rodent models, we will demonstrate that life experiences (BEHAVIOR) can directly influence neurobiological processes to influence outcomes, particularly stress-sensitive markers.

This is part of the Changing Neurobiology with Behavior Neurobiological Consequences of Behavior Theme Program.
