The Integrative Neurobiology Laboratory (INL), under the direction of Dr. Christopher Cowan, seeks to identify novel genes, proteins and molecular mechanisms that control proper brain wiring during development, and to understand the role of these basic processes in the young and adult brain under chronic pathological conditions, such as drug addiction, depression, autism and Fragile X Syndrome. The INL utilizes cutting-edge experimental techniques and broad interdisciplinary, translational research approaches to gain a great depth of understanding about the underlying regulation of brain development and function, and to better elucidate the underlying deficits in brain function that contribute to neuropsychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders.
