The RUB news portal reports on the extension of the SFB 1280:
The SFB 1280 “Extinction Learning” has set itself ambitious goals for the second funding period: “In our research we want to comprehensively understand the mechanisms of extinction learning, from genes to the brain to behaviour,” explains spokesperson Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Onur Güntürkün, holder of the Chair of Biopsychology at the RUB. “In doing so, we want to use or develop new methods that make it possible to track what happens in the brain during learning from the individual cell to the entire system, manipulate it experimentally and simulate it with computational models.” Based on these findings, the team hopes to develop new therapeutic options for patients suffering from anxiety disorders or chronic pain.
