The overarching goal of the Moehle Laboratory is to understand the cellular, molecular, and circuitry changes that underlie symptoms of neurological disorders. Using this deep understanding of changes to the brain in disease, we will be able to leverage these discoveries into novel therapeutic strategies for these diseases with large unmet clinical needs. Utilizing genetically, pharmacologically, and biochemically defined models of neurological disorders (such as dystonia, Parkinson’s Disease, and Dementias) we will perform cutting edge pharmacological, electrophysiological, behavioral, biochemical, and in vivo fiber photometry techniques to interrogate the cellular, molecular, and circuitry level changes in the central nervous system in these model systems. These studies have the possibility to make substantial advances in our understanding of brain wide changes in diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, dystonia, and dementias as well as provide the pre-clinical rationale to direct larger drug discovery efforts for unique targets in these disorders.
