High-speed force probes for deconstructing the biophysics of mechanotransduction

Stanford Neurosciences Institute, Luis de Lecea

The purpose of this collaborative project is to study neuronal mechanisms associated with social stress. In particular we will test whether the energy producing systems, known as mitochondria, in a specific set of brain cells are important to confer resilience to stressful stimuli. This research may lead to treatments of stress and anxiety disorders.
