Areas of Research

Behavioural Neuroscience
My lab studies how the critical brain networks regulate complex behaviours and how depression inducing chronic stress affects connectivity and behaviour. We use a multidisciplinary approach with a combination of patch clamp electrophysiology, in vivo calcium imaging, optogenetics, histological and behavioural analysis in transgenic mouse models to answer these questions. With these approaches, we seek to ultimately develop novel circuit-based targets for treatment of neuropsychiatric diseases characterized by emotional dysregulation.
