Cognitive Neuroscience

Research work

In the Barak lab we study the neurobiological mechanisms responsible for abnormal social and anxiety-like behaviors in genetic neuropsychiatric disorders such as Williams syndrome and autism.

 

We study how genes, molecular processes and brain regions regulate social and anxiety-related behaviors in health and illness, and focus our research on understanding how these factors are disrupted in genetic neurodevelopmental disorders. Ultimately, we aspire to translate findings from our basic research to clinical aspects that will hopefully improve the diagnosis, understanding and treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
