2009 CNTRICS II: First Meeting: Evaluating Potential Biomarkers of Cognitive Function

The multisector collaboration called Cognition Neuroscience Treatment Research to Improve Cognition in Schizophrenia (CNTRICS) is engaged in a challenging project to find treatments for the cognitive deficits in schizophrenia. In particular, they are trying to determine what animal models are appropriate for this work. At the first meeting in their second round of work, a number of talks were presented, and we list them here. Please navigate to conference page to watch the videocasts.
