Sarah has received a Ph.D. in Neurobiology from the University Laval at Québec and a M.Sc. from the Université Claude Bernard in Lyon. Her Ph.D. focused on the striatal microcircuitry in normal and pathological conditions.
Today, she is thrilled to investigate what are the neural correlates of the corticostriatal projections during a reward-related task. To achieve this, she uses electrophysiology techniques, calcium imaging using a two photon microscope and optogenetics in vivo
