The Neuroepigenetics Interest Group addresses questions regarding epigenetic regulation in the nervous system and disorders. Recent studies have shown dynamic regulation of various epigenetic modifications not only during the development of the nervous system, but also in the mature nervous system. We are interested in developing novel technologies to probe dynamic epigenetic modifications under normal physiology and disorders at the system and single cell levels. We are also interested in addressing the function and dysfunction of various epigenetic mechanisms in the nervous system at the molecular, cellular, circuitry and behavioral levels.
