Neurons in Youth

Center-affiliated faculty member Takao Hensch, a professor of neurology at Children’s Hospital Boston, is leading a group of Harvard researchers in an effort to map how brain wiring occurs early in life and what happens when it goes awry. Research by Hensch, who is also a professor of molecular and cellular biology, looks into how genetic alterations can affect this wiring and may one day lead to new therapies for disorders such as schizophrenia and autism.
