Welcome to the Gittis Lab!
What is the neural basis of motor control? Our research seeks to understand how neural circuits in the basal ganglia are organized and function to shape movement in health and disease.
We use optogenetics, electrophysiology, histology, and behavior to study the function of neural circuits in brain slices and in vivo.
