Welcome to the Vanini Lab!

Our research uses a systems neuroscience approach to understand how brain circuits regulate interacting states of sleep, wakefulness, anesthesia and pain. 

To this end, we use a combination of behavioral assays, electroencephalographic/electromyographic (EEG/EMG) recordings, neurochemical monitoring, calcium imaging, viral tracing, functional neuroanatomy, as well as chemogenetic tools to identify and probe neural networks controlling sleep, wakefulness and nociception.
