Mechanisms of action of drugs of abuse; neurochemical correlates of movement and motivation; real-time assessments of neurotransmitter function during behavior; genetic and neurotoxic models of neurodegenerative disease

  • Molecular and Systems Neuroscience
  • Behavioral Neuroscience
  • Transgenic models of neurodegenerative disease
  • Behavior-related neuronal processing in forebrain networks
  • Cortico-limbic circuits underlying drug addiction
  • Mechanisms of information exchange in cortico-striatal circuits

We are especially interested in cortical interactions with the basal ganglia and related limbic nuclei.
