Prof. Dr. med. Dr. rer. nat. Anne Albrecht
Anne Albrecht is head of the Department of Neuroanatomy at the Institute of Anatomy at the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg. She runs a research group on the functional neuroanatomy of stress and emotional memory and is responsible for neuroanatomy teaching for medical students. Her major expertise is in developing and using models of stress and emotional learning in rodents to interrogate the role of GABAergic interneuron circuits and neuropeptides in individual stress responsiveness across the life time. She will contribute to preclinical rodent models for stress-induced psychopathologies and will collaborate with the groups of S. Mikulovic, J. Pakan, St. Remy and O. Stork in Magdeburg and R. Stumm and M. Walter in Jena to brain circuits as neural access points for psychiatric conditions.
