Research into anxiety and its treatment and causes has been ongoing for decades and as technology advances, then new areas for research are opening up. One such area is being explored by neuroscientists right now who are trying to identify specific brain cells - specific neurons - that are implicated in anxiety. A study recently found that certain cells in the hippocampus are very important in the way anxiety works in our brains. Most of these tests are being done currently on mice - not in humans yet - but they're hoping to further this research and identify more and more specific neurons in the brain that are implicated in anxiety's mechanism in our brain so that down the road, additional drug therapies might be developed to turn certain of these neurons on and off and provide relief for people who suffer with anxiety.
