CV Starr Fellow Alexander Nectow receives NARSAD Young Investigator Award

Alex will investigate the role of a brain area called the dorsal raphe nucleus (DRN), in both depression and feeding-related behaviors. The dorsal raphe is a remarkably complex structure, comprised of numerous cell types, and Dr. Nectow plans to functionally dissect the role of the DRN’s component cell types in the healthy and depressed states. His goal is to elucidate the neural circuit mechanism underlying depression, which may ultimately aid in the development of novel therapies.
