Assistant Professor Nathan Urban To Investigate Mechanisms that Underlie Neuronal Synchronization in Hopes of Better Understanding Schizophrenia

Nathan UrbanCarnegie Mellon University neuroscientist Nathan Urban has received a $979,000 grant as part of a joint National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and National Science Foundation (NSF) program to elucidate how cellular and molecular changes in neurons lead to their synchronized firing. Ultimately, this work is critical to understanding brain disorders, such as schizophrenia, which are thought to involve disruption of neuronal synchronization.
