Lab information

The Zhong Lab study how the brain change to allow an animal to adapt to the ever-changing world. Our focus is on two types of changes — neuromodulation and experience-dependent plasticity — using rodents as the experimental model. We perform in vitro and in vivo experiments using a variety of approaches, including advanced microscopy, electrophysiology, optogenetics, mouse genetics, CRISPR-based gene editing, and computation.

Research focus
