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.
