Abstract:
An organism exposed to a stressful situation will undergo a complex array of physiological and behavioural changes aimed at the preservation of the organism during the stressful event as well as at stimulating adaptive and mnemonic processes in case the event would reoccur in the future. It is well-known that the hippocampus is highly involved in these processes. It has become clear in recent years that the processing of environmental stimuli in the hippocampus could be via changes in epigenetic state that lead to changes in neural function.
