Vulnerable Brain Project at NYU by Dr. William Slater and Investigators
About My Campaign
We launched the Vulnerable Brain Project to better understand the neurochemistry of brain disorders that afflict vulnerable young people, specifically eating disorders, addiction, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and autism spectrum disorders. Research funding has been drastically reduced in the current era, and private philanthropy has become crucial to conduct basic and clinical research in the mental health realm.
Three world-class investigators – Joseph LeDoux, Elizabeth Phelps, and Catherine Hartley - at the Emotional Brain Institute (EBI) of NYU comprise the core VBP research team. Their collaborative work seeks to understand how the brain detects and responds to perceived threats, and how the associated anxiety is processed.
Thank you for your support.
