Description

Our understanding of how disturbances in neural networks in the brain result in emotional disorders is limited, and many patients (animal and human) do not respond well to existing treatments. Fundamental research into the neural networks that underlie emotional behaviours that combines studies in both animals and humans will provide essential information critical to animal welfare, and will also inform the development of new therapeutic strategies for individuals suffering from emotional disorders e.g. post traumatic stress.
This young investigators’ workshop organised and led by postdocs and PhD students from different European research groups will discuss shared interests, methodologies and ideas for pilot experiments and grants. The workshop will bring together members of leading international research groups based in Bristol, Edinburgh, Essen, Paris and Brussels who have complementary skills and common interests on the role of the cerebellum in emotional behaviours, notably fear and anxiety.
