In May 2020 the Albrecht lab started its work at the Institute of Anatomy at the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg, Germany.

Our research focusses on understanding the functional neuroanatomy of stress adaptation and emotional memory formation.


We have a new paper out:

“Region-specific involvement of interneuron subpopulations in trauma-related pathology and resilience.” by Regev-Tsur S, Demiray YE, Tripathi K, Stork O, Richter-Levin G, Albrecht A. Neurobiol Dis. 2020 Jun 17;143:104974. doi: 10.1016/j.nbd.2020.104974.

In this paper, we investigate the individual impact of traumatic stress on the activation of differnt interneurons populations in the dorsal vs. ventral dentate gyrus and identify NPY as an important factor mediating stress resilience. – access the paper here
