Studying uniquely human illness, such as anorexia nervosa, is difficult in animal models. However, it is necessary to understand the biology underlying these complex disorders to develop improved treatments. Dr. Ross will describe how her lab works with mouse models to advance our knowledge and describe potential treatment targets for anorexia nervosa and other diseases that affect both the brain and the body.

The webinar is hosted by Jeffrey Borenstein, M.D., President & CEO of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, and host of the public television series Healthy Minds.
