Hypothalamic Cell Types and Circuits that Drive Survival Behaviors

Seminar: Neuroscience Seminar | December 3 | 2-3 p.m. | 125 Li Ka Shing Center

 Yeka Aponte, National Institute on Drug Abuse, NIH

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

The diverse collection of genetically-distinct cell types in the lateral hypothalamus (LH) is crucial for orchestrating a variety of motivated behaviors that facilitate survival. A pivotal role of the LH in regulating appetitive and reward-related behaviors has been evident for decades. However, the contributions of LH circuits to other survival behaviors has been less explored. Here we examine...   More >
