Insights Into Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Mood Disorders From Adult Neurogenesis and Neural Circuitry Studies-A Conversation With Amar Sahay

Lisa Girard

Amar Sahay, Ph.D, is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital, Center for Regenerative Medicine, and Principal Faculty at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute. His primary research interests include how plasticity mechanisms in the adult brain affect cognition and mood and how perturbations in neural circuits may contribute to psychiatric disorders. Among other honors, Dr. Sahay has been the recipient of the Society for Neuroscience Career Development Award, the NIMH Pathway to Independence Award, and the Ellison New Scholar Award. StemBook Editor, Lisa Girard, was able to talk with Dr. Sahay recently about the exciting advances in understanding how changes in neural circuitry, specifically adult hippocampal neurogenesis, affects cognition and mood.
