The lab of Christopher Chen is broadly interested in the cerebellum and how its connections with the rest of the brain underly behavior. The cerebellum is critically important for motor coordination, but its specific nonmotor roles are much more enigmatic. A multitude of pathways connecting the cerebellum to a diversity of structures unrelated to motor control have been discovered, suggesting a diversity of function that has barely been explored. The lab uses a combination of classic in vitro electrophysiology, in vivo multielectrode recordings, calcium imaging, anatomical tracing, and targetted behavioral assays to understand how exactly the cerebellum plays a role in these nonmotor functions. Alongside a strong focus on cutting edge, impactful science, the lab is a training ground for passionate thinkers and tinkers, and is committed to the advancement and growth of all of its members.
