The Goshen Lab investigates neurons and astrocytes in high brain function.
What underlies the transition from recent to remote memory? How is reward represented in the brain? How does local modulation of neuronal activity by glia cells directly affect plasticity and behavior?
To solve such puzzles we employ a variety of research approaches, integrating behavior, calcium imaging, electrophysiology and molecular biology, and apply optogenetics or chemogenetics in all of these levels.
