Anxiety and addiction are disorders with high co-morbidity that present a major worldwide public health concern. Treatment in both cases often involves an approach called extinction which helps to reduce the relapsing nature of these disorders. This grant is designed to examine the role of a specific protein in addiction and anxiety, by virtue of its involvement in the process of extinction.
