overview We investigate the molecular machinery underlying synaptic plasticity and information processing in the brain. We are especially interested in synaptic mechanisms supporting reinforcement learning, economic decision making and motor control. Our main approaches include mouse genetics, fly genetics, optogenetics, animal learning paradigms, electrophysiology, molecular biology and RNA-seq.
