2. Tracing

Mapping neural circuits: we use a combination of the Cre-LoxP system and virally mediated gene transfer with immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization to identify specific connections in the nervous system that promote resiliency or susceptibility to stress-related disease.

Anterograde Tracing: Taken up by the cell body. Used to label projections from a population of neurons.
Retrograde Tracing: Taken up by the axons. Used to label the input to a population of neurons.
