New PhD student at DANDRITE
Junior Samuel López Yépez started as a joint PhD student between Duda Kvitsiani's group and Professor Henrik Stapelfeldt at Dept. Chemistry per 1 September 2016. The research goal is to explore neural circuit mechanisms that control reward foraging decisions in mice. For this they will develop new tools to concurrently measure electrophysiological activity and release of neuromodulatory transmitters in prefrontal circuits. Specifically they will use photometry and high-density silicone probe recordings in mice foraging for probabilistic rewards.
