To elucidate the molecules and circuits responsible for psychiatric disorders and to develop strategies for treatment disorders, we will carry out the following projects. 1) Development of a protocol for autologous embryo transfer to effectively generate mutant common marmosets (Callithrix jacchus). 2) Generation of model marmosets for tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) to study its biology. 3) Screening of the candidate genes responsible for psychiatric disorders.
