Scientifica Meets - Dr Michel Desarmenien
International Manager, Suzie Tompkinson, speaks to Dr Michel Desarmenien about his work on vasopressin and treatment of social behaviour disorders.
The hormone and neurotransmitter, vasopressin, plays an important role in controlling activity in regions of the brain that influence social behaviour. Dr Desarmenien, and his colleagues at Universite Montpellier, are combining electrophysiology studies (using mice models), with genetic analysis of humans to develop treatments for disorders such as depression and anxiety.
