Genetic dissection of restricted repetitive behavior (RRB)  

This research will study genetic mechanisms of restricted repetitive behavior (RRB) focusing on 15q11-q13 region, using Prader-Willi syndrome and autism spectrum disorder as paradigmatic disorders of RRB. If genetic underpinnings of RRB are identified in these clinical groups, it will provide valuable insights into the RRB pathogenesis and help identify novel targets for treatment of these chronic and disabling clinical conditions.
