Nenad Sestan, M.D., Ph.D., Executive Director, Yale Genome Editing Center, Professor, Department of Genetics, Yale School of Medicine Our research focuses on understanding the molecular and cellular basis of how neural circuits are established and maintained in the cerebral cortex, the outside part of the mammalian brain that processes our senses, commands motor activity, and helps us perform higher-order cognitive functions like language. We also study how these complex processes were...

Marc Fuccillo, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Neuroscience Department of Neuroscience, School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania Goal-directed action is a fundamental organizing principle of behavior and is frequently perturbed across neuropsychiatric disorders. Our lab explores the cellular and circuit-level mechanisms that align motor output with outcome, including the formation of action-outcome associations, the weighing of benefits and costs and the regulation of behavioral...

Naoshige Uchida, Ph.D, Professor, Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Center for Brain Science, Harvard University The ability to predict future reward and threat is critical for animals' survival so as to maximize rewards and minimize potential threats. Neurons that release dopamine (thereafter, dopamine neurons) are thought to play critical roles in learning from both reward and threat. However, the exact mechanisms remain controversial. Much of the work on dopamine neurons has been...
