We're interested in understanding brain function using a combination of genetically encoded sensors and optical techniques. We use genetically encoded tools to target neurons with specific genetic types or specific projection pathways, and use optical microscopy to measure or change the activity of the selected neurons. By employing and developing tools in both categories, we study brain circuitry by recording, perturbing, and controlling brain activity in various preparations.
