Doctoral Graduate Students
Research Interests: The structure and function of synaptic and extrasynaptic receptors that regulate motor function and locomotion. Currently targeting GABA receptor subunits with CRISPR gene editing in order to characterize their role in various forms of epilepsy.
Research Interests: Sex differences in neural circuits regulating attention, specifically through norepinephrine release from the locus coeruleus. Using DREADD chemogenetics to create an ADHD model
Research Interests: Behavioral, Electrophysiological, and Molecular mechanisms underlying sexually dimorphic behavior
Research Interests: I am interested in adolescent brain development and how drugs of abuse, especially alcohol, can interfere with the normal course of myelination during this period.
