Identifying the epigenetic modifications and their impact within discrete neuronal populations is critical in understanding brain health and disease risk, including behaviors important to stress coping, addiction, and learning and memory. Expert speakers will describe their latest studies on novel epigenetic mechanisms, including miRNAs, nucleosome remodeling, and unique histone modifications, and demonstrate their role in specific behavioral outcomes.
