L-Type voltage gated calcium channels, and in particular the gene CACNA1C, have emerged as some of the most robust molecular targets associated with psychiatric disorders. In this presentation Prof Hall will present data in both transgenic animals and human populations looking at the impact of genetic variation in CACNA1C on gene expression and phenotypes relevant to psychiatry.
