I have been fascinated by animals since my childhood, and have a strong background
in anatomy, behavior, molecular biology and awake electrophysiology. My lab is interested in the functional organization of dopamine-striatum systems. Our current focuses include a unique subpopulation of dopamine neurons that project to the tail of the striatum (TS), computation of reward prediction error, and individual variability in the decision-making. My hobby now is to watch wild animals and to grow vegetables.
