Analyses of mechanisms of stress response in the brain

     It is well known that stress tends to affect the mental condition. However, effects of stress are still unclear on the brain. We are focusing on the regulation of motor activities and the cognitive function by studying effects of stress on the brain. To elucidate the stress response mechanism, we employ multiple approaches, such as the behavioral analysis of an animal, the expression of genes and proteins in the brain and blood, and analysis of the release of neurotransmitters and the density of receptors.
