Aabnormal behaviors are often seen in neuropsychiatric diseases. We have developed a new humanoid mouse model for autism by using a chromosome-engineering technique. In this project we study molecular pathophysiology of animal models such as autism and mood disorder and basics for new diagonistic and therapeutic tools.
