Animal models of neuropsychiatric disorders  

Relevant to their research interests in animal models of neuropsychiatric diseases, the Laboratory of Behavioral Neuroscience investigates the behavioral phenotypes of transgenic and knockout mice with mutations in genes expressed in brain pathways involved in neuropsychiatric disorders. Taken together, these multidisciplinary analyses of multiple mouse models of autism are likely to move the field forward by testing hypotheses about the causes of autism and identifying useful treatments.

Strategic Plan Objective Green dot: Objective has greater than or equal to the recommended funding. 4.5 Standardize and validate at least 20 model systems (e.g. cellular and/or animal) that replicate features of ASD and will allow identification of specific molecular targets or neural circuits amenable to existing or new interventions by 2012.
