Research theme

We aim to understand the cellular and molecular mechanism of the growth and fate-determination of neural stem cells in the developing and adult mammalian brain. We are also interested in the functional significance of postnatal/adult neurogenesis on higher brain functions, such as spatial learning/memory and olfactory-related behaviors. Our lab has expertise in the optical regulation of gene expression and neuronal activity, genetic manipulation of neural development and plasticity, and long-term monitoring of neural circuit plasticity in vivo with the two-photon microscope and brain endoscope.
