Weill Cornell researchers find that a single gene is responsible for OCD-like behaviors in mice
Date:4/26/2010

esearchers have created mouse models of other types of OCD as recently as 2007. However, for the first time, the findings involving Slitrk5 by Drs. Rafii, Lee and their teams are consistent with imaging studies in humans with OCD that implicate dysregulation of corticostriatal circuitry in the disorder.

"This work is an unexpected off-shoot from stem cell science into the realm of psychiatry, and could potentially have major application for treatment of neuropsychiatric diseases," says Dr. Rafii.
