NIH Grant Renewal

Investigator Ron Yu, PhD, was awarded a five-year renewal of a grant from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders of the National Institutes of Health. This grant supports research related to understanding the neural mechanisms that control innate social and sexual behaviors.

Identification of the specific neural circuits that process a set of defined social signals in mice will provide essential information in understanding brain mechanisms for sensory information processing, social communication, and endocrine control.
