Translational Model of Anhedonia

Translational Model of Anhedonia

The proposed research addresses a major mental health issue (anhedonia) with a novel computationally-inspired translational technique in both humans and mice. This approach greatly increases the likelihood that a positive animal model result will be successfully translated to humans. This research plan thus offers a novel way to address the NIMH's mission of defining mechanisms of complex behaviors.
