Social interactions are essential to animals to survive, reproduce, raise their young. Over the years, my laboratory has attempted to decipher the unique characteristics of social recognition: what are the unique cues that trigger distinct social behaviors, what is the nature and identity of social behavior circuits? Using a vast range of experimental approaches including genetics, chemo-and optogenetics, activity recording in behaving animalssingle cell, we are exploring how the function of these circuits are controlledhow they are modulated by the animal physiological status and early life experience.
