WPIC Offers Clinician-Educators Unique Career Development Opportunities
The critical role of Clinician-Educators (CEs) has continued to gain recognition within academic medical centers, and the responsibilities of CEs have increasingly become more complex. To help physicians navigate this complexity, the Department has established a programmatic approach that involves personalized career development to enable CEs to identify their talents, develop specific skill sets, and unleash their...
Findings by Dr. Marianne Seney et al. Show Opposite Brain Transcriptional Profiles in Men and Women with Major Depressive Disorder
Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a devastating psychiatric disorder and leading cause of disability worldwide. It affects women approximately twice as often as men, and incidence and symptoms differ between the sexes, affirming the importance of studying brain pathology of depression in both men and women. Women are three times as likely to have atypical depression, with hypersomnia and weight gain, suggesting...
Findings by Dr. Guillermo Gonzalez-Burgos and Dr. David Lewis Indicate that NMDAR Activation Enhances Inhibition of PCs by PVBCs
Understanding the mechanisms by which N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors (NMDARs) regulate cortical circuit function is crucial for testing hypotheses that NMDAR hypofunction is involved in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Recent studies reveal that presynaptic NMDARs control transmitter release at cortical synapses, suggesting novel mechanisms of NMDAR action in cortical circuits. If presynaptic NMDARs enhance...
