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.
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.
