Society for Neuroscience

The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) formed in 1969, is a society of scientists and clinical physicians with a collaborative focus on the study and treatment of human brain and nervous system disorders. SfN has more than 36,000 members, publishes peer-review journals, newsletters, news stories for the Web and conducts educational symposiums.

Why stress doesn't always cause depression

Rats susceptible to anhedonia, a core symptom of depression, possess more serotonin neurons after being exposed to chronic stress, but the effect can be reversed through amygdala activation, according to new research in the ...
