My lab investigates the development and function of diverse classes of inhibitory neurons in subcortical brain structures, with emphasis on the thalamus. The thalamus plays a central role in sensory perception, attention and the sleep-wake cycle, and its dysfunction contributes to several psychiatric disorders. Our experimental approach relies on the combined application of functional neuroanatomy, genetics and behavioural tests to ultimately understand the role of inhibitory neurons in health and disease.
