Stresor Controllability and Dynamic Neuroimmne Interactions. We have demonstrated that stress induces cytokine gene activation in discrete regions in the brain associated with the stress response. We have further demonstrated that this results in neuroinflammation. We are currently examining what role the basal lateral amygdala plays in this response using optogenetic technology to inhibit neuronal input from the basal lateral amygdala during stress presentation.
