Our lab is interested in investigating the molecular mechanisms and the circuits underlying behavioural traits in neuropsychiatric disorders.
In mouse animal model, combining electrophysiological techniques with molecular approaches and behavioral paradigms, we investigate how the reward system during the postnatal development encodes experience and how defect in these processes may lead to neuropsychiatric disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
Morphine withdrawal recruits lateral habenula cytokine signaling to reduce synaptic excitation and sociability.
SHANK3 Downregulation in the Ventral Tegmental Area Accelerates the Extinction of Contextual Associations Induced by Juvenile Non-familiar Conspecific Interaction.
What does cannabis do to the brain before birth?
Targeting VGLUT2 in Mature Dopamine Neurons Decreases Mesoaccumbal Glutamatergic Transmission and Identifies a Role for Glutamate Co-release in Synaptic Plasticity by Increasing Baseline AMPA/NMDA Ratio.
