Dr. Lin's work focuses on exploring cellular and molecular mechanisms by which experience is coupled to modifications of neural circuits that lead to long term behavioral changes, with ongoing projects in 4 areas: 1) Molecular & circuit mechanisms of learning & memory; 2) Neural circuit assembly and synapse development; 3) Molecular & circuit mechanisms of Neurological disorders; & 4) Neurogenetic tool development. Lin lab research carry out their studies using multi-disciplinary approaches, i.e. molecular and cellular biology, mouse genetics, electrophysiology, imaging, chemogenetics, optogenetics and mouse behavior.
