    Our lab investigates the organization and function of motor circuits using multidisciplinary cellular and systems neuroscience approaches. We aim to identify how distinct brain regions and cell types interact to select and control movements. Our major focus is on the basal ganglia, a critical network in the motor system whose dysregulation underlies several common movement disorders.­­
