The path the ancients cleared has closed. And the other path, everyone's path, Easy and wide, goes nowhere. I am alone and find my way. —ancient Sanskrit verse adapted by Octavio Paz The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, or a hell of heaven.

Teamwork Builds Big Brains The average adult human's brain weighs about 1.3 kilograms, has 100 billion or so neurons, and sucks up 20% of the oxygen we breathe.

Social Neuroscience Laboratory: Research Research Interests Developmental neurobiology and genetics of social behaviors, including social affiliative and aggressive behaviors, in mouse models relevant to autism and schizophrenia spectrum disorders. Research Summary Our laboratory is interested in the neurobiological and genetic mechanisms of social behavior development, particularly the development of social affiliative and aggressive behaviors. Certain highly heritable neuropsychiatric disorders, including autism and schizophrenia spectrum disorders, are characterized by disabling disruptions of socio-emotional behaviors (e.g. affiliative behaviors, aggressive behaviors) and social cognition.
