Today I bring you a discussion with Dr. Vikaas Sohal, Staglin Family/IMHRO Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at UCSF. Dr. Sohal conducts pioneering research in his lab to unravel how neurons connect in circuits, and how they behave abnormally in psychiatric diseases such as schizophrenia. If you like, you can read a summary of Dr. Sohal's recent studies in our research section.
Thanks everyone for sharing your experiences and asking Dr. Sohal some important questions. Big thanks to Dr. Sohal for answering them! Comments are now closed.
Please visit again in January, when Dr. Colleen McClung will talk about her promising hunt for potential therapies for bipolar disorder through regulation of specific genes.
