Neurobiology of sexual dimorphism in social and reproductive behavior

We are studying the neuronal and molecular mechanisms that govern reproductive behavioral patterns and social interactions. 

The lab focuses on two main themes: 

1. Elucidating how sexually dimorphic reproductive behaviors, such as mating, parental care and aggression, are encoded by the male and female brain, and regulated by environmental stimuli (focusing on olfactory signals). 

2. Dissecting the mechanisms underlying social behaviors and group organization in neurotypical and autism spectrum disorders (ASDs)-related mouse models
