Ann Graybiel, PhD, Professor of Neuroscience, Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, M.I.T.; Investigator, McGovern Institute for Brain Research, M.I.T.
Ann M. Graybiel is an Institute Professor at MIT. Her research is focused on how the regions of the forebrain that influence movement, mood and motivation — the basal ganglia and neural pathways interconnecting the basal ganglia with the cerebral cortex — operate in normal and abnormal conditions. Dr. Graybiel and her group, in order to approach these issues, apply combinations of methods ranging from multi-electrode recordings from neurons in the brain to genetic engineering, optogenetics, fast-scan cyclic voltammetry and designer drug manipulations during behavior.
