Adam's research focused on the microcircuitry of piriform cortex, specifically mapping out the inhibitory connections between the many interneuron subtypes within the anterior piriform through optogenetics and ex vivo whole cell recordings. He investigated how inhibitory connections can modulate activity, through Targeted Recombination of Active Populations (TRAP) – a transgenic technology with a activity and drug dependent expression of a reporter gene. Adam successfully defended his thesis in April 2017 with three manuscripts and many more contributions to future lab studies. Congratulations on a job well done!
Adam is currently in a postdoctoral position
