Mission & Core Values
Brain Networks in Health and Disease
It was recently demonstrated that electrical connectivity across multiple brain regions can be used to define brain states related to depression vulnerability.
Molecular and Cellular contributions to Brain Network Activity
Brain networks comprise various neuronal connections between brain regions and diverse cell types within each brain region node of the network. Dissecting the cellular and molecular contributions to these networks is a major effort of the lab.
Finding Solutions for Complex Brain Disorders
In addition to psychiatric disorders, another debilitating and complex brain disorder of interest to the lab for which effective treatment remains elusive, is chronic migraine.
