Welcome to the lab

The Geschwind laboratory is working to improve our understanding of human neuropsychiatric diseases, such as autism and neurodegenerative diseases, and their relationship to the range of normal human higher cognitive function. We use a combination of genetic, functional genomic, and neurobiological methods in our work--frequently in collaboration with other laboratories or disciplines. Our methodological focus involves the application of network analyses and systems biology, which offer the promise of integration of multiple levels of data, connecting molecular pathways to nervous system function in health and disease.
