Neural circuits of motivation and attention

Dysregulation of the neural machinery that supports motivation and attention may contribute to cognitive and behavioral symptoms of neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders. Research in the Howe lab uses a systems neuroscience approach to identify circuit mechanisms supporting these functions that may serve as targets for novel therapeutics.
