Martin Lab Publications

 

This collection showcases the journal articles and other publications authored by researchers in the Martin Lab. The Martin Lab at the University of Massachusetts Medical School was established in 2001, in the Brudnick Neuropsychiatric Research Institute, in the Department of Psychiatry. In 2017, the Martin Lab moved to the Department of Neurobiology.
