|Neurobiology of motivated behavior and addiction
We are interested in dissecting the neural circuits that contribute to reward function and understanding how these pathways are altered by drugs of abuse.
|Activity-dependent epigenetic regulation in neurons
We employ cutting edge tools to understand how neuronal activity modifies the epigenome to direct gene expression patterns.
|Epigenomics and transcriptomics
We are using high-throughput sequencing platforms in tandem with available molecular biology and bioinformatic tools to understand transcriptional and epigenetic processes in a genome-wide fashion in defined brain circuits.
