Synaptic and Circuit Development in the Basal Ganglia
What are the fundamental rules governing the design of neural circuits during early life? How are these rules updated by experience and broken in disease? We investigate these questions in the basal ganglia, a phylogenetially ancient region of the brain essential for complex, goal directed motor actions and reward-based behavior. One of our primary current interests is the influence of neurotransmitters, such as glutamate, GABA and dopamine, on synaptic development and neural circuit integration in the mouse basal ganglia. To address these questions, we rely on 2-photon imaging and neurotransmitter photorelease, whole-cell electrophysiology, opto- and pharmacogenetics, neuroanatomy and behavior.
