Neuropeptide Y (NPY) modulation of different behaviors via limbic Y1 receptor (Npy1r).Long-lasting impact of early-life stress on the brain limbic system, leading to vulnerability to psychological disorders in adulthood. Experience-dependent formation of a specialized extracellular matrix on neurons, named “perineuronal net” (PNN). Role of plasticity modulators in influencing neuronal communication within specific networks and, in turn, behavior. Systems plasticity in learning and memory.
