The Levitz laboratory uses a variety of optical techniques to improve our understanding of synaptic signaling molecules with a focus on neurotransmitter-gated G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). The lab is particularly interested in probing GPCRs at the molecular, synaptic, and circuit levels to gain a more coherent and mechanistic view of their roles in physiology and neuropsychiatric disease.
