Molecular Analysis of Brain Neurons Involved in Innate Behavior

Innate behaviors and basic drives involve complex neural circuits. The identification of genes expressed in neuronal components of these circuits provides tools to unravel how the circuits function. In this project, the student will work with a postdoc mentor investigating genes that mark neurons involved in innate behaviors in mice.
