I am interested in dopaminergic heterogeneity in the mammalian brain. Dopaminergic neurons in various brain areas differ in their physiology, connectivity, morphology and gene expression. I am currently working on a project co-supervised by Dr. Sue Jones and Dr. Elisa Galliano in dopaminergic heterogeneity in the mid-brain (Substantia Nigra pars compacta and the Ventral Tegmental Area) and in the olfactory bulb. The project utilizes whole-cell patch clamping experiments with targeted pharmacology to investigate the physiology of the above groups of dopaminergic neurons, and immunohistochemistry for visualizing their morphology.
