Elucidating the Developmental Underpinnings for 
Social Behaviors


Our research

  • Our group's goal is to understand the neuronal underpinnings by which social information is being processed and innate social behaviors established during infancy and adolescence. 

  • We are also interested in determining how the cellular and circuit mechanisms for social behaviors are disrupted during environmental stressors and in neurodevelopmental disorders.


We foster an environment
based on mutual respect where diverse ideas are shared 


We use chemogenetics and optogenetics for cellular and circuit manipulations, record in vivo neuronal activity in bulk and in single-cells via fiber photometry, amongst others  

Data Dissemination

We encourage presenting projects within our Institute, at local, national, and international conferences and at other academic Institutions
