Neurobiological Psychiatry

Group: Steven Kushner

NeurobiologyDescription research
The underlying neurobiology of psychiatric disorders remains largely enigmatic, owing to a combination of the complexity of the central nervous system as well as technical limitations in studying the brain.

However, emerging scientific advances in neuroscience, genetics, epidemiology, and cell biology have created unique opportunities for understanding normal brain function and the psychopathological consequences of its dysfunction.

Our approach has been to establish a research program where clinicians and clinical researchers are working side-by-side with neuroscientists, geneticists, and epidemiologists to study neuropsychiatric illnesses and neurobiological circuit mechanisms from their cellular and genetic basis to social and cognitive function.
