Drew Lab publishes in Nature Neuroscience

The Drew lab published a paper in Nature Neurosicence entitled "Distinct hippocampal engrams control extinction and relapse of fear memory".  This work demonstrates that the hippocampus, a part of the brain essential for memory, generates memory traces of both fear and extinction, and competition between these hippocampal traces determines whether fear is expressed or suppressed.  This work has important implications for understanding the potential cause of disorders, like anxiety and PTSD, and they can also help us understand potential treatments.
