    Kiriana K Cowansage
    Center for Neural Science, New York University, New York, USA
    Curr Mol Pharmacol 3:12-29. 2010
    ..We conclude by emphasizing the importance of characterizing BDNF signaling cascades in behaviorally-relevant networks, to identify potential drug targets for novel therapeutic interventions...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 107:12692-7. 2010
    ..These results demonstrate in vivo optogenetic control of LA neurons and provide compelling support for the idea that fear learning is instructed by aversive stimulus-induced activation of LA pyramidal cells...

    Daniela Schiller
    Center for Neural Science, New York University, New York, New York 10003, USA
    Nature 463:49-53. 2010
    ..These findings demonstrate the adaptive role of reconsolidation as a window of opportunity to rewrite emotional memories, and suggest a non-invasive technique that can be used safely in humans to prevent the return of fear...
