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.
"Delving into delta-catenin's contributions to dendrite morphology: actions of a novel phospho-switch." Director, Genetics and Epigenetics Program.

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.

Watch a live presentation about the civil and environmental engineering undergraduate program. Hear from staff and chat with current students to learn about their experiences and what you can expect as a new CEE student.
Speaker: Ana Asenjo Garcia, University of Columbia
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
