Our laboratory is interested in the development and function of the nervous system.
We as k two fundamental questions:
1) What genes and pathways regulate the maintenance of pluripotent stem
cells and their commitment and differentiation into functional cell types?
2) What genes and pathways regulate
the assembly and function of neuronal circuits?
~ Stem Cells
~ Dopamine: noradrenaline; serotonin
~ Reward/emotion-related neural circuits and behavior
~ Drug and alcohol addiction
~ Regulation of camouflage
~ Parkinson's disease
