Research spotlight: Emma Puighermanal

As a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Functional Genomics in Montpellier, France, Emma Puighermanal works on how an important brain structure called the striatum controls behavior.

Dysfunction in the striatum is associated with multiple neurological and psychiatric disorders including Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease, schizophrenia, autism, and addiction, among others. To better understand this structure and how it is affected by disease, she used different tools to study the striatum at the level of genes, neurons, and neural circuits.
