Our goal is to understand molecular mechanisms that drive experience dependent circuit plasticity.

Our goal is to understand molecular mechanisms that drive experience dependent circuit plasticity.

from the moment an animal is born, its brain is working to extract information from its surroundings and initiate appropriate behavioral responses. This is done through the activity of excitatory and inhibitory neurons that are organized into synaptically connected circuits.

Our lab is interested in understanding how experience, via the execution of activity­dependent gene expression, regulates the connectivity of inhibitory and excitatory neurons and how these processes relate to animal behavior and disease states.
