We are neuroscientists interested in investigating how the brain develops, how it ages, and how during disease or injury these two processes are disturbed. We employ sophisticated and highly interdisciplinary experimental approaches (spanning along a molecular-cellular-tissue-behavior axis) to address fundamental neurobiology questions using the mouse as the model organism. Our experimental efforts have evolved into two major areas of research:

Regulation of stem cell transitions in the developing forebrain
Behavioral role of neuronal circuits established during distinct developmental windows
