Kozorovitskiy Lab Publishes Study

April 23, 2018

Kozorovitskiy lab published a study that demonstrates how oxytocin, an important hormone in the body and neuromodulator in the brain, controls the activity of dopamine-producing neurons by filtering the kinds of input signals they receive. Postdoctoral fellow Lei Xiao led the study, with the help of another postdoc in the lab, Michael Priest. The paper, titled “Oxytocin functions as a spatiotemporal filter for excitatory synaptic inputs to VTA dopamine neurons” came out in eLife journal last week. eLife is a non-profit organization, founded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Max Planck Society, and the Wellcome Trust​. The journal publishes work of the highest scientific standards and importance in all areas of the life and biomedical sciences. Back to top
