    Cell Reports March 8th

    Figure contributed by Coni Hoerndli Noncanonical genomic imprinting in the monoamine system determines naturalistic foraging and brain-adrenal axis functions See press release. "The revelation that maternal and paternal alleles of the same gene along the brain-adrenal axis could have disparate, [...]

  • Preprint: Dopa decarboxylase is a genetic hub of parental control over offspring behavior

    Dopa decarboxylase (Ddc) is a genetic hub of parental control over offspring behavior Hop on over to bioRxiv to see Dr. Bonthuis' latest paper on how Ddc, a monoaminergic regulator, is influenced by parentage and in turn effects social behavior. He [...]

Preprint: Dopa decarboxylase is a genetic hub of parental control over offspring behavior

Dopa decarboxylase (Ddc) is a genetic hub of parental control over offspring behavior

Hop on over to bioRxiv to see Dr. Bonthuis’ latest paper on how Ddc, a monoaminergic regulator, is influenced by parentage and in turn effects social behavior. He found maternal and paternal Ddc alleles control distinct behavioral sequences. Additionally, Ddc exhibits dominant expression of the maternal allele […]

What We Research

Genomic Imprinting in Circuits for Social Behavior

We aim to understand how genes, epigenetic regulation of gene expression, and hormone signaling in the brain interact to regulate social behaviors.
