Neurobiology of narcolepsy [login at prompt]
Available: 03/19/22, Expires: 10/21/23

Narcolepsy is a common sleep disorder caused by loss of the orexin-producing neurons in the hypothalamus. The student will perform basic science research using mouse models of narcolepsy to identify the brain circuits that give rise to sleepiness and cataplexy. Techniques may include fiber photometry to track neuronal activity and levels of neurotransmitters, optogenetics, chemogenetics, sleep recordings in mice, and anatomic studies. Prior experience in basic animal research is helpful but not necessary. The mentor (Dr. Scammell) has an office next to the lab in the Center for Life Sciences and will meet with the student at least weekly.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
