SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

I always wonder besides experiences effect our mental status; does they induce any other biological factors would cause anxiety disorders, depression and bipolar disorder. Also are there any possibilities for us to cure age-related neurodegenerative diseases? Since epigenetics has become a new area in biology, I would like to know what is the role that epigenetics plays in psychiatric diseases and neuronal regeneration.
