Neuronal Circuits and Behavior Group

Neuronal Circuits and Behavior Group

The Neuronal circuits and behavior group studies neuronal circuits regulating different aspects of innate behaviors, including feeding-related behaviors. Our aim is to reveal and decode functions of various hypothalamic neuronal circuits in these behaviors in health and disease.

Research interests

The Neuronal circuits and behavior group studies neuronal circuits regulating different aspects of innate behaviors, including feeding-related behaviors. The overall goal of our group is to unravel functions of hypothalamic neuronal circuits in health and disease. We aim to decode neuronal mechanisms of neuropsychiatric disorders, associated with dysfunctions of hypothalamus, including eating disorders. To reveal and decode influence of various neuronal groups and their inputs on innate behaviors, we combine state-of-the-art technologies including multisite high-density neuronal recordings in transgenic behaving mice, optogenetics, chemogenetics as well as novel computational and engineering approaches.
