Integrative Neuroscience

Rene Hen, PhD, Chief


The Division of Integrative Neuroscience is a research division aimed at understanding the pathophysiology underlying psychiatric illnesses using approaches that span multiple levels of neurobiological analysis.

Accordingly, we combine molecular and cellular neurobiological techniques with analyses of the behavior of neural circuits and neural systems in order to fully understand animal models of psychiatric illnesses such as anxiety disorders and schizophrenia. Consisting of three main research programs (laboratories led by Dr. Rene Hen, Dr. Holly Moore, Dr. Eduardo David Leonardo, Dr. Alex Dranovsky, Dr. Peter Balsam, Dr. Karen Duff, Dr. Christine Ann Denny, and Dr. Gary Sean Escola) and several additional faculty members and fellows, Integrative Neuroscience maintains close ties with the Center for Neurobiology and Behavior and various other neuroscience laboratories in the department.
