Neural circuits underlying parental behaviour


  • Dr Johannes Kohl

    University College London

Project summary

Johannes will use his Fellowship to study the neural circuit basis underlying parental behaviour. He will start this project in Professor Catherine Dulac's laboratory at Harvard University, where he will use viral tracing, optogenetics and electrophysiology to anatomically and functionally identify parenting circuits. Subsequently, he will join Dr Tiago Branco's group at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, to investigate how social experience can alter these circuits.
