Title: 'Anxiety and depression the search for better therapeutics'

Abstract:
Anxiety and Depression are two common conditions that are thought to result from disordered function in the neural circuits that affect our emotional lives. While these disorders are clinically well established, their treatment is not simple. Currently they are treated by a combination of psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy. The pharmacological treatment of these disorders has largely proceeded by ad hoc discovery, and trial and error. As a result, many of these treatments are accompanied by a range of side effects.
The development of more effective pharmacological treatment requires an understanding of the biology that underpins these disorders. QBI's research is providing insights into the genetics of some of these disorders and possible targets for therapeutic action.
