Event Details: Neuroscience Lecture Series: Chromatin Cross-Talk in the Neucleus Accumbens: Implications for Cocaine-Induced Behavioral & Molecular Plasticity | Pamela Kennedy, Ph.D. | Nestler Laboratory, Mount Sinai

Description:

Chromatin Cross-Talk in the Neucleus Accumbens: Implications for Cocaine-Induced Behavioral and Molecular Plasticity

Pamela Kennedy, Ph.D.
Postdoctoral Fellow, Mount Sinai School of Medicine

Dr. Kennedy is part of the Nestler laboratory.  The Nestler lab works to better understand the molecular mechanisms of addiction and depression. They use animal models of these disorders to identify the ways in which long-term exposure to drugs of abuse or stress changes the brain to lead to addiction- or depression-like syndromes. A major focus of this work is on drug- and stress-induced changes in gene expression and chromatin structure within the brain's reward circuitry.




This event is part of the Neuroscience & Education program's Spring 2013 Neuroscience Lecture Series. Some of the most accomplished investigators in neuroscience from top universities in the NYC area will be presenting new developments in their leading-edge research on the frontiers of neuroscience.
