Programming, Reprogramming and Modeling of the Mammalian Cerebral Cortex
The execution of critical behaviors like movement, emotion, and intelligence relies on the orchestrated integration into functional circuits of an outstanding diversity of neuronal subtypes. Focusing on excitatory pyramidal neurons of the mammalian cerebral cortex, our work aims to understand the... Read more about Paola Arlotta, Ph.D.
The Dymecki lab studies how functional modularity arises within the brain serotonergic neuronal system and dynamically controls diverse processes ranging from respiration and thermal balance to emotional mood state to coping behaviors.... Read more about Susan Dymecki, MD, PhD

Our lab is interested in identifying genes that direct the development of the cerebral cortex, not only because of their disease-related importance but also because they tell us about the normal development and evolution of the brain.... Read more about Christopher A. Walsh, MD, PhD
