The overall aim of Cynthia’s PhD project is to assess how stress- related genetic and environmental changes affects stress- signalling pathways in the mammalian cortex and to determine how these factors may relate to schizophrenia. I aim to determine the extent to which genes involved in the stress response may increase the risk of developing schizophrenia. In addition, I aim to determine the extent to which markers of susceptibility to stress are related to schizophrenia.
