How does our brain mediate persistent behavioral changes? To answer this central question in neurobiology, we investigate how monoamine systems, such as the serotonin (5-HT) and dopamine (DA) systems, 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.
