We study how the nervous system encodes experience. Our main model system addresses the development of the response to cocaine experience. Our uniquely multidisciplinary applies knowledge gained from studying the principles of dynamic gene regulation to investigation of neural circuit organization underlying the development of addictive behaviors. Understanding the mechanisms defining neural circuit organization in addiction will lead to unique insight into how the brain encodes experience and is expected to impact the treatment of psychiatric disorders.
ENU day 2017 is coming!
We are excited to host this year's ENU day on March 29, 2017, at ELSC. The conference will focus on our community's scientific work, and will allow us to share our recent professional insights and experiences.
