Dr. Gabriella Gobbi’s recent revolutionary research, “Father Absence in the Monogamous California Mouse Impairs Social Behavior and Modifies Dopamine and Glutamate Synapses in the Medial Prefrontal Cortex” (Cerebral CORTEX, Oxford Journals) highlighting the importance of fathers in both neurobiology and behavior of offspring has been featured by numerous media outlets.
In this week’s Spotlight, we would like to highlight Dr. Simon Young who will be setting his sights on a well-deserved retirement as Emeritus Professor after 42 years with the McGill Department of Psychiatry.

He has made exceptional contributions to research, teaching and administration, authoring approximately 230 referred papers and over 50 editorials and comments.
