About

We use brain-slice patch-clamp, genetic, immunochemical, and molecular biology approaches to study the neural circuit organization and synaptic and molecular plasticity of hypothalamic neuroendocrine cells and amygdalar neurons involved in the brain regulation of physiological homeostasis, stress, depression, and stress disorders such as posttraumatic stress and anxiety.
