“Utility of Electrophysiological Endophenotypes in Psychiatric Disorder: Translational Studies in Humans and Animal Models”

“Utility of Electrophysiological Endophenotypes in Psychiatric Disorder: Translational Studies in Humans and Animal Models”

Thursday, August 10, 2017 - 11:00am-12:00pm

Belmont campus - de Marneffe Building, Room 218

Cindy L. Ehlers, PhD, The Scripps Research Institute

In this talk, Dr. Ehlers will discuss three different electrophysiological techniques that can be used in both animals and humans to index activity in key brain areas that can serve as endophenotypes for psychiatric disorders: EEG spectral analyses, event-related potentials to cognitive and sensory stimuli, and event-related oscillations. The genetic and neurochemical basis of these endophenotypes will also be presented.
