Our goal is to understand the mechanisms of dysfunctional sensory cortical development in autism, with a focus on the interaction between interneurons and glial cells.

To achieve this goal we use a multidisciplinary approach, including population dynamics (in vivo two-photon imaging in alert mice and one-photon imaging in free-moving mice), high resolution microscopic reconstruction of synapses on cortical neurons and glial cells, electrophysiological methods (in vitro patch clamp and in vivo extracellular recording), and behavioral studies.
