Thalamus Conte Center

Mission Statement

The Center is aimed at advancing our understanding on the role of higher order thalamus in cognition. Higher order thalamus is perturbed in schizophrenia, which may contribute to cognitive impairments and leading symptoms. Gaining a mechanistic understanding of thalamic function and interactions with cortex will be fundamental for developing therapeutic interventions that will target higher order thalamus in severe cases of schizophrenia.
