mazeirob@msu.edu

Interests: The goal of the Mazei-Robison lab is to understand how dysfunction of ventral tegmental area (VTA) neurons contributes to drug addiction and mood disorders. We identify molecular and cellular changes in VTA neurons using methods such as translating ribosome affinity purification and evaluate their behavioral relevance using viral and genetic approaches in mouse models.
