New research division within Department of Psychiatry will focus on neurocognition, neurocomputation, and neurogenetics

May 22, 2015

Yale Department of Psychiatry is pleased to announce the creation of a new research division that will focus on systems neuroscience in psychiatry, combining cognitive, computational and genetic approaches.

This new division, named Neurocognition, Neurocomputation, and Neurogenetics (N3), will be co-directed by David Glahn, PhD, professor of psychiatry, and Alan Anticevic, PhD, assistant professor of psychiatry and of psychology.

Methodologically, the division will become a home for investigators using computational, pharmacological and neuroimaging genomic techniques to bridge levels of experimental analysis and link genes, circuits, and behavior. The division will also help nucleate collaborations in this area across departments in the medical school and across the university, through joint appointments, collaborative training and research grants and a seminar series.

By uniting these approaches, the overarching scientific and training mission of the division is to foster innovative basic, translational and clinical research in the pursuit of a mechanistic understanding of neuropsychiatric disorders.
