Probing functional neural circuits at high spatial-temporal resolution is crucial to understand how neuronal populations work together to achieve higher brain functions such as learning and memory. We aim to understand these circuit mechanisms with cutting-edge multiphoton imaging and optical control technology. Our current research focuses on the following subjects;
- Dendritic voltage integration of synaptic potentials.
- Circuit mechanisms underlying odor-induced behaviors.
- Development of fluorescent probes for monitoring neural activity.
