My laboratory is devoted to elucidating the influence of genetics on behavior. One main objective of the lab is to use Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS) in mice and rats to identify novel genes that modulate behavior. We use these discoveries to delve into the mechanism by which these genes influence behavior. We are also using similar techniques to examine normal (non-pathological) variability in human behavior.
