Our current projects in my laboratory focus on studying the roles of gene regulation of BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor) in depression and anxiety, using genetically modified mice. We study from gene to behavior, using molecular and biochemical, electrophysiological, and behavioral techniques.
