Neuroscientists Identified Anxiety Cells in Mouse Brain
A new research from neuroscientists at UC San Francisco and the Columbia University Irving Medical Center suggests that feeling of anxiety might be connected to the newly identified anxiety cell in the brain. The study was published in Neuron.
The researchers discovered this type of cells in the hippocampus in the brains of mice. The authors of the study believe that these cells also exist in human brains.
One of the senior investigators Rene Hen, Ph.D., a professor of psychiatry at CUIMC, explains: “We call these anxiety cells because they only fire when the animals are in places that are innately frightening to them. For a mouse, that’s an open area where they’re more exposed to predators, or an elevated platform.”
