According to a new study, mice injected with a specific bacterium became more resilient to stress, showing less anxiety and fear in stressful situations.
Researchers report medications that boost the effect of naturally produced opioids may be better at reducing anxiety and fear than receptor binding opioids.
A new study reveals the brain circuit that governs how we respond to conflicting environmental cues.
Researchers have identified two brain pathways that appear to be critical in determining how mice react to visual threats. The findings could have implications for treating PTSD and phobias in humans.
Researchers have identified a neural circuit that regulates threat response in mice.
Researchers report connections between the hippocampus and a specific type of neuron in the prefrontal cortex are involved in fear relapse. The findings could help in the development of new treatments for PTSD.
Those who find it hard to cope with uncertainty over possible future threats could have an unusually large striatum, a new study reports.
New evidence suggests the brain can update poorly formed memories with incorrect information, leading to the creation of false memories.
Researchers report what appears to be impulsiveness could be an adaptive strategy.
