    by Jules Asher on June 12, 2017 at 9:00 pm

    For the first time, neuroscientists have boosted a female rodent’s partnering with a male by stimulating connectivity of a brain reward circuit. Understanding the circuitry of such affiliative behaviors may lead to improved treatments for social impairment in severe mental disorders, such as […]

  • Blog Post » The Future of RDoC
    by Joshua Gordon on June 4, 2017 at 9:00 pm

    In the first of two messages, Dr. Gordon shares his thoughts on NIMH’s Research Domain Criteria (RDoC), and discusses how we might be able to use big data approaches to enhance this research framework in the future. […]
