Project title: The reward circuits of the striatum

Primary supervisor: Dr Enrico Bracci

Project description: The striatum is a brain area crucially involved in action selection and reward-mediated learning. Unravelling the neuronal circuits underlying these functions is essential to understand their operation and to find therapies for when things go wrong (for instance in drug addiction). State of the art electrophysiological techniques and photostimulation (optogenetics) will be used.

Formal enquiries should be addressed to: Dr Enrico Bracci
