Description

Description

Delineating the mechanisms underlying social-emotional development is the central theme of this application, using translational strategies to investigate the social neuroscience of mental health. In this context, most animal studies to date have focused on measures of social behavior in adult animals, which lack mechanistic developmental explanations. Therefore, structure:function developmental studies are proposed in mice to investigate the potential convergence of circuit components involved in mediating social behavior.

Strategic Plan Objective

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. IACC Recommended Budget: $75,000,000 over 5 years.
