Neurological and Neuropsychiatric Disorders

Disorders of the nervous system have a devastating effect on the lives of those who are afflicted and represent a major burden to society. Advances in the prevention and treatment of brain disorders require the coordinated efforts of basic science and clinical investigators with a broad range of expertise, from the cellular and molecular aspects of neuronal function to the analysis of cognitive and behavioral performance. DIBS investigators work side by side in multidisciplinary teams that are focused on exploring the neural basis for a particular brain disorder and developing more effective treatment strategies.
