    The “LINE” (Laboratory of Integrated Neuroscience and Ethology) is a multi-disciplinary research laboratory which emphasizes the integrative understanding of the links between brain/mind and behaviors from multi-disciplinary approaches. Our current research interests mainly focus on 4 lines of studies. (1) To study mouse models of psychiatric disorders and the possible role of AKT1 and other schizophrenia candidate genes (e.g., NRG1 and DISC1) in the pathogenesis of schizophrenia. (2) To investigate higher cognitive functions and reward-based decision making in both mice and humans. (3) To study social neuroscience and the neural basis of social learning and memory using hamsters as a model. (4) Preclinical evaluation of potential drugs for the treatment of schizophrenia.
