This early January, our newest paper entitled “Hippocampal acetylcholine modulates stress-related behaviors independent of specific cholinergic inputs” has been published in Molecular Psychiatry. Using a combination of optogenetic, chemogenetic and pharmacological approaches, this study demonstrates the role of ACh release in the hippocampus in stress-induced behaviors. You can read the paper here.

Congratulations to Yann Mineur, Ian Etherington, Chika Ogbejesi, Richard Crouse, Wenliang Zhou and the rest of the authors!
