Neuromedine U (NMU) and the stress response: developing a new selective CNS active NMU receptor ligands and unraveling the role of NMU in major depression and limbic epilepsy

Project Details


Goal: In the present research project we aim to characterize the distribution of neuromedin U neurons in the central nervous system and will use chemogenetic tools to interrogate their involvement in stress-induced behaviour.
