My overarching research goals are to elucidate the neural mechanisms that underlie core deficits in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and to identify promising therapeutic targets. My lab is specifically interested in examining the environmental, biological, and neural factors that contribute to communicative deficits in ASD using mouse models. To assess these relationships, I utilize a variety of behavioral, immunohistochemical, pharmacological, and imaging techniques.
