Summary

Schizophrenia is a highly heritable neurodevelopmental disorder, accompanied by impairment in a variety of day-to-day cognitive functions that are associated with exposure to certain herpesviruses. This project investigates the role of a major gene of the immune system in the etilogy of herpesvirus-spurred cognitive impairment. Results from these investigations could help devise novel immunotherapeutic interventions in this devastating disorder.
