Description of Interests

My major research interest has been to identify the pathophysiology of clinical features of severe psychiatric illness. I have focused most of my career on linking the water imbalance that is found in about 25% of schizophrenic patients to structural and functional deficits in the central nervous system. Our current efforts are focused on establishing whether neuroendocrine deficits, particularly oxytocin, are responsible for increased vulnerability to psychological stress and impaired emotion recognition and social functioning in this patient population, and may be reversible with neuropeptide therapy.
