Neural and antidepressant effects of propofol
We are investigating the neural and clinical actions of propofol, a general anesthetic agent that may have antidepressant effects.
Genomics and phenomics of refractory depression
This study aims to reveal the genetic causes of severe mood disorders, and to identify clinical and biological subtypes of depression that respond best to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT).
Manipulation of mood circuits with precision TMS
Cutting-edge transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) tools are being applied to probe the neural circuits that generate and regulate emotion.
Individual differences in human reward circuitry
We are examining genetic variants and behavioral traits that drive individual differences in the brain's reward system.
