The central goal of our lab is to study general principles of how social behavior is regulated in the brain. We study how neural circuits regulate social behavioral decisions within a single brain as well as how emergent inter-brain neural properties arise from social interactions between individuals.

This seminar will present data that increasing activity of ACh inputs to the hippocampus selectively induces stress-dependent behaviors, including increased susceptibility to social stress. Our working hypothesis-ACh signaling in hippocampus may be relevant to negative encoding bias, that is, increased focus on negative events, experienced by individuals with depression.
Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Neuroscience. The focus of the Olsen lab is to better understand the role of astrocytes in normal and abnormal central nervous system function.
Esther Ngumbi Assistant Professor of Entomology and of African American Studies, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign “In Pursuit of Perfect Tomato and Corn Varieties and the Chemistry Behind Their Scents”
Professor, Department of Biology. Bioinformatics and Genomics, Biology, Cell and Developmental Biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Neuroimmunology, Neuroscience, Translational Science
Successful adaptation to changing environmental conditions depends on the ability of one's memory to flexibly guide decision processes. Possible roles for the hippocampus and lateral habenula in this critical function will be discussed, as well as their implications for our understanding of the neural mechanisms underlying disorders of behavioral flexibility/eg-depression
