Examining the contribution of dentate gyrus granule cells and ambiguity toward the stress response and behaviour of the rodent

Abstract:

The hippocampus and adult-born neurons have been implicated in regulating the stress response and disambiguating conflicting goal-related information. How these functions interact to promote adaptive behaviour has not been investigated. In this thesis, hippocampal lesions or pharmaco-genetic ablation of adult neurogenesis in mice ('TK mice') was used to dissect this relationship. Hippocampal lesions or selectively ablating adult neurogenesis decreased defensive behaviours toward a partiall...
