Our work is performed using mice as a model. We take advantage of a range of classical and modern cellular and molecular biology techniques:


Electrophysiology (patch clamp) and optogenetics.

Cyclic voltammetry (to measure dopamine release).

Digital fluorescence imaging.

Confocal imaging.

Cell culture (mainly primary neuronal cultures).

Immunofluorescence and western blotting.

mRNA measurements using RT-PCR.

Cellular bioenergetics (using a Seahorse bioanalyzer).

Acute transfection (mainly using viruses).

Brain slice preparations.
