Concept Clearance » Identification, Validation, and Manipulation of Neural Circuits Related to Mental Illness, in Non-human Primates

The goal of this initiative is to support the identification, validation and manipulation of neural circuits that underlie cognitive, emotional, and social processes impacted in mental illnesses. The initiative is focused on probing psychiatrically relevant behavior through studies in non-human primates. This initiative is intended to complement existing NIMH-funded preclinical investigation of circuits which have often focused on smaller brains.
