107. BNST Cell Type-Selective Changes in Gene Expression in Response to Chronic Stress

      Distinct regions and cell types in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) act to modulate anxiety in opposing ways. A history of chronic stress increases anxiety-like behavior and has lasting electrophysiological effects on the neurons in the BNST. However, the opposing circuits within the BNST suggest that stress may have differential effects on the individual cell types that comprise these circuits in order to shift the balance of the circuit to favor anxiogenesis. Yet the effects of stress are generally examined by treating all neurons within a particular region of the BNST as a homologous population
