Brief description Debilitating anxiety disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder or panic disorder, affect 14% of adult Australians and current therapy is often ineffective. The amygdala is a brain region that is key to learning fear responses but also in reducing our fear responses. This project will determine whether the brain’s own endogenous opioids can modify the activity of the amygdala in order to provide new leads for novel pharmacotherapies with enhanced efficacy.
