Sidiropoulou Lab


The research interests in the Sidiropoulou lab aim to understand the cellular and synaptic plasticity mechanisms within the brain reward system, including brain areas such as the prefrontal cortex, striatum, hippocampus, ventral tegmental area and amygdala, both under physiological and pathological conditions. 

Techniques we use include patch-clamp recordings, field potential recordings from brain slices, behavioral assays related to memory function, histology and computational modeling.
