We recently identified a new neurodevelopmental disorder characterised by intellectual disability and psychiatric symptoms, similar to other severe neurodevelopmental orders we study. The aim of this project is to use learning and memory tasks, sophisticated single cell sequencing, chromatin, bioinformatic and molecular approaches in a new mouse model to understand the causes of this disorder and develop and test novel treatments.
