Neural circuits controlling sleep

Yang Dan’s lab uses electrophysiology, imaging, optogenetic, and computational techniques to study functions of the mammalian brain. They have studied microcircuits underlying visual cortical computation and mechanisms for cortical plasticity at multiple levels, from synapse to perception. Recent work has revealed the mechanisms by which brainstem, hypothalamus, and basal forebrain circuits exert powerful control of sleep-wake brain states.
