New neural circuits publication!
Updated: Feb 13, 2021
Check out our recent publication 'Circuits that encode and guide alcohol-associated preference' in eLife, led by postdoc Dr. Kristin Scaplen. Here we’ve defined the neural circuits that are important for the acquisition, consolidation, and expression of alcohol- associated preference and identified two separate convergent regions that we think are important for updating information processing and memory. We can now use this circuit as a framework and pull out general circuitry principles for how memories for intoxication act in more complex brains.
