Matthew LaClair is a second year Ph.D. student in the Neuroscience and Behavior Program. He will use the CRF grant to complete a project examining how dysfunction within the sex steroid and the dopaminergic systems produce the cognitive and emotional symptoms of schizophrenia. By better understanding the way these two systems interact, it may be possible to discover novel therapeutic treatments for these symptoms. This project will be completed in collaboration with his advisor, Dr. Agnès Lacreuse (psychology).
