Research

My laboratory aims to elucidate the integrative action of molecular clockwork and functional relevance in biological rhythms of the mammalian brain by using a variety of experimental tools including molecular, cellular, anatomical and behavioral approaches.

[1] Deciphering the fundamental principles and physiological significance of biological oscillations including circadian and ultradian rhythms.

[2] Identifying the process of molecular clockworks by real-time monitoring of a single neuron's activity. 

[3] Elucidating the functional link between molecular clockwork and mood regulation in a variety of circadian rhythms-related disorders including Parkinson's disease.
