Project summary

In 2012 Tiago started his own group at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, where he combines physiological and molecular methods to investigate how the mouse brain implements the computations that underlie innate behaviours. He is currently a Visiting Scientist at the Janelia Farm Research Campus, working on synaptic integration in the hypothalamic circuits that control feeding behaviour.
