"Unraveling epigenetic links between stress and dysregulation of adult hippocampal neurogenesis"
Accumulating evidence indicates that adult hippocampal neurogenesis (AHN) plays critical roles in mood regulation. Several challenges in life such as stress, aging, and neurodegenerative diseases impact on AHN. However, respobnsible molecular pathways for the impairment of AHN remain to be identified. The project aims at identifying key molecular links from stress to adult neurogenesis.
