Description of Research Expertise

Our research interests revolve around understanding neurophysiological correlates of neuropsychiatric diseases, such as autism, schizophrenia and Rett syndrome. We look particularly on how local circuit function is perturbed in rodent models of these diseases, using state-of-the-art in situ imaging methods as well as single cell electrophysiological techniques. The scale of work ranges between the synaptic and local circuits to imaging how multiple brain areas interact in the limbic system and cortex. In collaboration our work spans allele to behavior.
