  • Pharmacology

Projects:

  • Cellular basis of learning-induced switching from impulsive- to compulsive-like feeding behavior
  • Synaptic and cellular analysis of a decision-making network
  • Dopaminergic modulation of electrical coupling and oscillatory membrane properties in pacemaker neurons
  • Role of calcium dynamic in the oscillatory properties of pacemaker neurons
