Modulation of striatal circuits by midbrain dopamine neurons

Dr. Nicolas Tritsch obtained his Bachelor and Master degrees from McGill University in Montréal before earning a PhD in neuroscience from Johns Hopkins University under the mentorship of Dr. Dwight Bergles. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. Bernardo Sabatini at Harvard Medical School before joining the Neuroscience Institute and Marlene and Paulo Fresco Institute for Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders at New York University. The Tritsch Lab carries out fundamental research aimed at revealing how the nervous system generates movement, and how disorders of movement control, such as Parkinson’s disease (PD) corrupt this process.
