How does our brain modulate the brain states to facilitate learning and stress resilience? To answer this central question in neurobiology, we investigate how monoamine systems, such as the serotonin (5-HT), orchestrate whole-brain neural dynamics during adaptive and maladaptive behaviors.


Kawashima lab is now recruiting postdocs, PhD/MSc students and lab staff. Please contact us if you are interested in solving the mysteries of the monoamine systems together with us! Click here for more details.
