Dopamine’s Role in the Striatal Ensemble Dynamics of Learned Actions

Project: Research project

Project Details


Aim 1: Confirm that D1- and D2-SPN ensemble dynamics undergo distinct transformations during reinforcement learning. Aim 2: Establish the inter-relation of striatal dopamine transmission and the transformations in D2-SPN ensemble dynamics associated with reinforcement learning. Aim 3: Determine whether in vivo Ca2+ and immediate early gene (IEG) expression dynamics predict changes in the strength of excitatory synaptic connections in D2-SPNs.
