Neuroscience and Behavior Program Colloquium: “GABA-Glutamate Interactions: From Circuits to Cells to Molecular Regulation”

April 10, 2013
4:00 pm

Morrill Science Center

Room: 222

UMass Amherst Campus

Free admission

Dr. Francine Benes of Harvard Medical School will be lecturing on “GABA-Glutamate Interactions: From Circuits to Cells to Molecular Regulation”.  

Dr. Benes pioneered the application of rigorous quantitative approaches to characterize anomalies in the circuitry involving anterior cingulated (ACCx), hippocampus (HIPP) and basolateral amygdale (BLa). Her research program uses a two-pronged approach in which postmortem studies of limbic lobe structures are conducted in parallel with a rodent model for the neural circuitry changes observed in the anterior cingulated cortex and hippocampus of schizophrenic and bipolar subjects.
