Amygdala microcircuits controlling learned fear

Neuron

Jun 9, 2014

Sevil Duvarci, Denis Paré

Abstract

We review recent work on the role of intrinsic amygdala networks in the regulation of classically conditioned defensive behaviors, commonly known as conditioned fear. These new developments highlight how conditioned fear depends on far more complex networks than initially envisioned. In...read more

Neural Networks

Here is the latest research on physiological and in silico networks and circuits implicated in the nervous system.

Filariasis

Filariasis is a parasitic infection caused by various nematodes of the Filarioidea superfamily. Different worms present as different infections depending on the the location of thhe infection: lymphatic filariasis (caused by Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, and Brugia timori) is an infection of the lymphatic system, subcutaneous filariasis (caused by Loa loa, Mansonella streptocerca, and Onchocerca volvulus) is an infection of the skin, and serous cavity filariasis (Mansonella perstans and Mansonella ozzardi) is an abdominal infection. Find the latest research on filariasis here.
