"Bridging the brain-behavior gap" --

Kutlu Lab is a "Behavioral Neuroscience" laboratory trying to understand how our brains make connections between stimuli and events in our environments and how these associations become "maladaptive" in disease states. 

We combine systems neuroscience, computational neuroscience, and behavioral approaches to examine how multidimensional behavioral patterns are represented in neural circuits.


The main objectives of our research program are 3-folds:

1) Understand the neurobiological mechanisms underlying reward vs. aversive learning

2) Elucidate how reward and aversive memories become persistent and maladaptive

3) Examine how organisms learn from observing and interacting with their conspecifics
