Research Interest

  • Our research focus pertains to understanding the neurobiology of psychotic illnesses. With our collaborators, we use a translational approach including mouse models, human post mortem brain tissue and human clinical and imaging approaches to determine the influence of genetic and environmental stressors on brain development, structure and function.
