About the Lab
Our goal is to develop circuit-based therapies for neuropsychiatric disorders. We use experimental approaches including brain slice whole cell patch clamp electrophysiology and in vivo optogenetics, electrophysiology and calcium imaging combined with animal behavioral assays.
These preclinical studies in rodents will lay the groundwork for advances in therapeutic brain stimulation in humans: once we understand how changes in neural circuits drive specific symptoms, we can manipulate those pathways to compensate for or reverse disease.
Black Lives Matter. We are committed to being a supportive, anti-racist, and inclusive community. We encourage people from all walks of life to join our diverse group. We welcome people of all ages, religions, ethnicities, nationalities, gender identities, and sexual orientations.
