The research focus in the laboratory is to develop and apply in vivo optical imaging methods as well as computational method for data analysis, to disseminate neuronal circuit dysfunction leading to the development of long term drug addiction and relapse. Currently, the primary focus of the group is to develop the miniScope imaging system allowing simultaneous recording of activity of hundreds of neurons in deep brain regions of freely moving animals. In the long term, in vivo deep brain imaging and closed-loop feedback control of neuronal circuit activity, as well as closed-loop patterned optical of neuronal activity will be explored.
