March 2018 - Congratulations to Dr. Singh and Dr. Rasgon for "Brain and behavioral correlates of insulin resistance in youth with
depression and obesity" in press in Hormones and Behaviors.
"We posit that, in the context of depressive symptoms, insulin resistance is associated
with aberrant structure and functional connectivity in the Anterior Cingulate Cortex (ACC) and hippocampus."
March 2018: Drs. Rasgon, Reagan, Tamashiro, and Nasca recently received a grant from the Pritzer Consortium to conduct research on gestational diabetes. This is the first PALS-wide grant to receive funding, so congratulations to all!
March 2018: Drs. Felice and Reagan presented at the Plenary Symposia for the American Society of Neurochemistry meeting in Riverside. Their symposium was entitled "Insulin Resistance, Cognitive Dysfunction and Depression: A common triad in Alzheimer's disease."
