About the lab

Our lab is located at Stanford University School of Medicine in the Department of Neurobiology.

We research how the brain works, how it develops and how to re-wire it to improve perceptual, cognitive and emotional states.

Our two main goals  are to:

  1. Discover strategies for curing blindness.
  2. Understand the brain circuits that underlie visual fear.

A critical aspect of our work is linking laboratory studies to decipher mechanisms, with the formulation of treatment paradigms applied to humans.

Currently, we are developing virtual reality and gene therapy platforms to offset and reverse vision loss, and to treat people suffering from chronic stress, anxiety and PTSD.
