We study the neurobiological underpinnings mediating learning and decision-making, and how these processes are affected in substance use disorders and neurodegenerative disorders.

We use in vivo techniques including in vivo electrophysiological and Ca++ imaging to record neural activity in awake and behaving rats, and manipulate circuits using optogenetics and chemogenetics to determine causal links between dysfunctional neurophysiological and behavior.
