Our lab studies the function of basal ganglia circuits and how they change in diseases such as obesity, addiction, and depression.
Under normal conditions, the basal ganglia contributes to the selection of beneficial actions. However, these processes can become disordered in neurological and psychiatric conditions.
We use behavioral testing, optogenetics, and electrical and optical measurements to understand behavior and brain function.
