    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Lavin’s research interest is focused on understanding the cellular mechanisms that underlie attention and working memory. In particular, her lab investigates how some types of neurotransmitters regulate the electrophysiological properties of neurons located in the frontal cortex. It is thought that dopamine and noradrenaline, by modulating cortical networks, play a role on focusing attention and working memory. Areas of research interest include synaptic electrophysiology, network activity and cortical circuitry. Techniques being employed include in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology and slice cell culture.

    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.
