It has been pointed out that neurons of schizophrenia and ASD patients have defects in synaptic plasticity in their specific brain circuits. To elucidate the molecular pathology, our group put a focus on molecular motors and related cytoskeletons,and generate and analyze various animal models from rodents to marmosets that include genetic and PolyI:C models.
