Research in my laboratory focuses on genes, neural circuits and human diseases that are connected to aggression using zebrafish (Danio rerio) as a model organism. Over the last two decades, zebrafish have become a premiere model to study neuroscience since they offer many of the key advantages of invertebrate models while sharing anatomic and genetic similarities with mammals, including humans.
