Clinical Science

The Clinical Science Faculty at UC Berkeley conduct translational research in which we study foundational mechanistic processes (e.g., emotion, sleep, intimate relationships, social competence, temperament, reward systems, family dynamics, and culture) with the goal of better understanding and ameliorating human problems. Our faculty study these processes in at-risk or in patient populations (e.g., schizophrenia, bipolar and other mood disorders, sleep disorders, dementia and other neurological diseases, ADHD and comorbid conditions) and/or in treatments. The treatment research we conduct is used to develop hypotheses about and/or confirm contributions of the foundational mechanistic processes, and it also contributes to improving treatments for important human problems and in diverse populations.
