Depression is a debilitating disorder of the brain/mind/body. Definitive understanding of aetiopathophysiology-pathology is lacking and, accordingly, current therapies are of limited efficacy. Our main goals are to conduct research with mouse models that: (1) increases understanding of the aetiopathophysiology-pathology underlying critical emotional-cognitive dysfunctions in depression, and (2) contributes to the discovery and development of novel, effective anti-depressant treatments.
