Research

The formation of synapses between neurons is required for proper brain development and function, and aberrations in this process can result in psychiatric diseases. Breeanne is investigating the genetic mechanisms underlying synapse formation in the brain, and how these genes affect the formation of neural circuitry that is responsible for various behaviors, primarily using the mouse model organism.
