Healthy Brains

We seek to understand how the normal brain develops and adapts from infancy to old age, and how lifelong adaptation is influenced by genetics, psychological and physical stress, and disease. Expanding our understanding of disorders such as autism, Down syndrome, depression, anxiety, and Alzheimer’s disease will lead to innovative treatments that prevent or ameliorate these disorders that, directly or indirectly, touch all our lives.
