NCCR-SYNAPSY The Synaptic Bases of Mental Diseases

Researchers and psychiatrists of the Swiss National Centre Competence in Research NCCR-SYNAPSY have joined forces to study the biological basis of psychiatric disorders. In order to offer patients new perspectives of a cure and a higher quality of life, this innovative union between psychiatry and neuroscience is seeking to better understand the origins of mental disorders, and thus settle upon better diagnosis and treatments.
