The Division of Neurocognition, Neurocomputation, and Neurogenetics (N3) focuses on systems neuroscience in psychiatry, combining cognitive, computational and genetic approaches.
Methodologically, the division is 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 nucleates 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.
