Synaptic Dysfunction in Neuropsychiatric Disorders

Project description

Mechanistic insight into mental disorders

Accumulating evidence indicates that mental disorders such as autism and schizophrenia are characterised by dysfunctional connectivity in the brain. The aim of the EU-funded Syn2Psy project is to train early-stage researchers to address fundamental questions regarding neuropsychiatric disorders. The rationale is to investigate synaptic defects and design strategies that target specific neuronal circuits as a means of modulating the course of the disease. Researchers will develop new disease models to study the pathways that regulate synapse development and plasticity alongside potential therapeutic interventions. The industrial partners of the project will offer expertise in drug and technology development.
