Learning and memory shape our daily life, social interactions and mental well-being. Mapping large-scale network activity on identified neuronal circuits during memory formation and retrieval is essential to understand the neurophysiological and pathophysiological basis of behavior. In my talk, I will focus on the organization and function of the neuronal circuitry of fear and discuss how functionally, anatomically and genetically defined types of amygdala neurons contribute to the acquisition and expression of conditioned fear behavior. Moreover, I will talk about imaging large scale populations of amygdala neurons across different behavioral states revealing general ensemble coding principles in amygdala circuits.
