  2. Statement of research interest : The goal of my research is to unravel the dynamics of cortico-striatal information processing underlying movement control in health and disease. To this end, I combine cell type-specific in vivo recording techniques, chemogenetics, and studies of molecular signaling in rodents, trying to link phenomena that occur at different biological scales. I am particularly interested in movement disorders of basal ganglia origin, such as Parkinson´s disease and medication-induced dyskinesias.
