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).
Deficit in motor skill consolidation-dependent synaptic plasticity at motor cortex to Dorso Lateral Striatum synapses in a mouse model of Huntington's disease.
Linking NMDA Receptor Synaptic Retention to Synaptic Plasticity and Cognition.
Morphine withdrawal recruits lateral habenula cytokine signaling to reduce synaptic excitation and sociability.
