We cross the street when the traffic light is green (action initiation), and we wait if it is red (action suppression), both in order to reach a goal across the street, such as getting an ice cream (rewarding) or insect-repellant to avoid a mosquito bite (aversive). Such action control is dysfunctional in several psychiatric disorders. For example, action initiation and suppression are impaired in patients suffering from depression and impulsivity, respectively. Thus, improving our incomplete understanding of the neural basis of action control has translational value, specifically how action outcome valence (rewarding or aversive) interacts with brain mechanisms of action control (i.e., initiation or suppression). The direct and indirect output pathways of the basal ganglia are strongly implicated in action initiation and suppression, respectively, and receive modulating input from dopamine and serotonin neurons, which are implicated in processing rewarding and aversive stimuli, respectively. I hypothesize that the anatomical and functional integration of these opposing systems supports action control as well as constitutes a neural interface for the interaction of action control and outcome valence. I propose to use a set of innovative and inter-disciplinary approaches that include monitoring neuronal ensemble activity with calcium imaging using implantable, miniaturized fluorescence microscopes and simultaneous optogenetic manipulation in novel transgenic rats performing in a tailor-made behavioral paradigm. I aim to understand the neural mechanisms in the basal ganglia that crucially govern the control over actions with different outcome valences. My anticipated results will inform future research and potentially treatment of psychiatric disorders such as depression and impulsivity disorders. Further, this fellowship will strengthen my position as an independent researcher and increase my chances for a tenure-track position at a European research institution.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "GONOGO" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (email@example.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
