I am fascinated by the development of neural circuits and processes that make human brain development unique. My current research is focused on the cellular basis of emotional development in children. I use traditional histology and light and electron microscopy in human samples combined with modern genetic tools and mouse models to test hypotheses generated from studying human development. I am studying nervous system development in human diseases like autism, epilepsy, and depression to learn fundamental characteristics of these disorders and to ultimately generate new therapeutic targets.
