Welcome to the LeGates Lab!

We are interested in how neurons communicate with one another to regulate behavior. We are particularly interested in behaviors related to depression such as reward related behaviors and cognitive function. Our goal is to identify critical neuronal circuits that underlie these behaviors. We aim to understand how these neurons communicate with one another and how changes in that communication contribute to psychiatric disease.
