A MOLECULAR APPROACH TO NEUROMODULATION AND SYSTEMS NEUROSCIENCE
WHAT WE DOResearch
Our goal is to understand how learning is encoded in brain circuits, and how new behaviours that did not exist before imprint in neuronal circuits when they are generated, matured and adapted upon changes in environmental rules.
HOW WE DO ITPublications
We combine behavioural procedures in mice drawn from the associative learning literature with the use of modern microscopy and transgenic technology for the recording, tracing and manipulation of specific circuits in the brain.
WHO WE AREPeople
Meet the members of the Neuromodulatory Systems & Behaviour team (NeuroModuLab), led by J. Bertran-Gonzalez and Miriam Matamales. We are based in UNSW Sydney and are part of the Decision Neuroscience Laboratory.
Our work is supported by the Australian Research Council, the National Health and Medical Research Council and the Tourette Association of America . Click for details
