"On Being a Circuit Psychiatrist"
Joshua Gordon, MD, PhD
Director, National Insitute of Mental Health
Modern neurobiological approaches have revolutionized the study of neural circuits and their relationship to behavior. We now have the ability to identify, monitor and manipulate specific circuit elements with exquisite specificity. I will describe my laboratory’s application of circuit technologies to characterize the neural circuitry underlying psychiatrically-relevant behaviors in mouse models. I will then discuss what might be necessary in order to harness the power of these tools to develop novel therapies with the capacity to transform mental health care.
