Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Ongoing advances in understanding the functional connections within the brain are producing exciting insights into how the brain circuits function together to support human behavior—and may lead to new discoveries in the development and treatment of psychiatric disorders.

Barch, PhD, of Washington University in St. Louis.
