Four Yale Department of Psychiatry researchers are recipients of 2021 Kavli Innovative Research Awards.
The awards, sponsored by the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience, are seed grants to Yale investigators to help early-stage, progressive neuroscience analysis initiatives that check daring, new concepts. Through these grants, the Institute goals to catalyze interdisciplinary collaborations between two or extra investigators with completely different experience.
This 12 months’s recipients from the Yale Department of Psychiatry are:
- Alfred Kaye, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry: “Exploring the Continuum of Threat-Imminence Oscillations Using Human iEEG.”
- Hyojung Seo, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and of Neuroscience; Nenad Sestan, MD, PhD, Harvey and Kate Cushing Professor of Neuroscience, and Professor of Comparative Medicine, of Genetics and of Psychiatry; and Amy Arnsten, PhD, Albert E. Kent Professor of Neuroscience and Professor of Psychology: “Genetic Strategies to Investigate the Roles of GABAergic Interneurons of the Primate Prefrontal Cortex in Cognitive and Motivational Regulation.”
