Research Statement

The goals of Sousa’s research are to identify and characterize the molecular and cellular mechanisms governing human brain development and evolution, and to apply that knowledge towards understanding neuropsychiatric disorders. He employs a multifaceted approach that combines functional genomics with developmental and evolutionary neurobiology. Approaching human brain development, function, and disease through the lens of our closest extant relatives, the non-human primates, is an essential component of his research.
