    About This Project

    About 18% of the American population is affected by a form of anxiety disorder and about 9% by depression. Current treatments for these mood-disorders aim at alleviating the symptoms without treating the causes. The aim of this project is to propose a new preventive therapeutic strategy for mood-disorders by targeting one of their major risk factor: Stress vulnerability.
