Is your glass half empty or half full? The role of medial prefrontal-hippocampal circuitry in negative emotion and cognition
Wednesday 18 May @ 4 pm5:30 pm (Sherrington Library)

Hannah Clarke from the University of Cambridge will be speaking about the neural and neurochemical basis for negative emotional behaviour and their implications for psychiatric disorders. Her research group studies how the hippocampus and amygdala communicate with the medial prefrontal cortex to regulate emotion using approaches such as combining neuroimaging techniques with specific neurochemical manipulations.
