A Translational Approach for Understanding Individual Differences in Emotions

Eliza Bliss-Moreau, Ph.D., Post Doctoral Research Fellow Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, California National Primate Research Center University of California, Davis. Discussant: Steven Youngetob, Ph.D., Department of Psychiatry.

In this talk, I will make the case for the importance of animal models of emotion for making headway in understanding the etiology of, and developing effective treatments for, emotion-related psychopathology. I will discuss new approaches in measuring affect in animals that is directly translatable to humans (i.e., methods that can be used in across species without anthropomorphizing about animals internal states). Finally, I will present data demonstrating that neonatal damage to the amygdale permanently blunts affective responding in rhesus macaques creating a behavioral phenotype that is observed in human emotion-related psychopathology.

Dr. Bliss-Moreau does not have financial relationships with commercial interests.
