The overarching aim of this central project is to set the animal experimental basis of this CRC in order to promote the understanding of neurobiological mechanisms underlying resilience to stress-related mental dysfunctions at the molecular-cellular, neural-network and behavioral levels. Specifically, this central project serves two major purposes: First, Z02 will be established as a state-of-the art service facility for other projects of this CRC initiative using the mouse as a model system. Second, Z02 will address genuine scientific questions, which will substantially contribute to our knowledge on appropriate mouse models for resilience research.
