Our understanding of the neurobiology of psychiatric illness is constantly changing and has benefited greatly due to the development of new research approaches and their ability to identify new causative mechanisms. For example, circuit analysis has been advanced by new noninvasive optical methods and our understanding of the genome is clearly associated with the generation of mice transgenic for pathology-linked genes. This course integrates these approaches to present a new view of the causes of mental illnesses, including Schizophrenia, Depression, Anxiety, Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and Addiction.

Permission of the course coordinator (with the expectation that the students will have a good background in biology or biochemistry) is required.
