Research

We investigate these topicsĀ 

… using the theseĀ methods

  • Electrophysiology
    • whole-cell recordings
    • single-unit recordings
    • field potentials
    • EMG
  • Neuropharmacology
  • Optogenetics
  • DREADDS
  • Fiber photometry
  • Microdialysis
  • Behavioral conditioning
  • Video tracking
  • Histology
    • single cell reconstructions
    • AAV injections and cannula tracing

… in mice that are under these conditions

  • Freely behaving (tethered)
  • Head-fixed
  • Anesthetized
  • Brain slices (in vitro)

Rigor is an important consideration in our work. Our experiments and analyses are automated (coded), so there are fewer confounding variables.
