More on Prof. Larry Young :
Dr. Young studies how genetic, cellular and neurobiological mechanisms regulate complex social behavior, including social cognition and social bonding. His research focuses heavily on the roles of the neuropeptides oxytocin and vasopressin in regulating the neural processing of social signals and social attachment. Dr. Young has developed behavioral paradigms that are useful for screening drugs that enhance social cognition, and is developing novel strategies for drug discovery for treating social deficits in psychiatric disorders such as autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia.   Dr. Young established the Center for Translational Social Neuroscience (CTSN), which brings together basic scientists and clinicians in the Atlanta area who are focused on understanding and healing the social brain.  The mission of the CTSN is to discover the neurobiological mechanisms regulating the social brain, and to translate these discoveries to novel therapeutic approaches to treat psychiatric disorders characterized by disruption in social behavior, including autism, schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders.
