Eric Nestler, PhD
"New insights into the neurobiology of depression"
Professor and Chair in the Neuroscience Department at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and Director of the Friedman Brain Institute
Dr. Nestler laboratory examines the molecular mechanisms of drug addiction and depression in animal models. Here they focus on the molecular and cellular changes that occur in regions of the brain important for reward and motivation, in response to chronic administration of a drug of abuse or chronic exposure to stress. He has a particular interest in long-lasting changes that are mediated via alterations in gene expression and chromatin remodeling.
