Exploring the neural circuits that underlie learning and behavior


The Mills lab uses electrophysiology, calcium imaging and optogenetics to record and manipulate neural circuits in vivo. We combine these techniques with computational analysis of behavior to uncover circuit-level mechanisms underlying motivated behaviors.


The first week of the Mills Lab at @UUtah is in the books (including a joint lab retreat + snowshoe trip w @jamesgheys1 amazing team)!! Might have been the best week of my life, truly grateful to be here and can’t wait to keep building the lab!🙏
