Prof. Joel Daphna

Prof. Joel studied the involvement of basal ganglia-thalamocortical circuits in normal and abnormal behavior, using mainly animal models of psychopathology. More recently Prof. Joel has expanded her work to research questions related to brain, sex and gender. Ongoing studies attempt to characterize the relations between sex and brain structure and function. Other studies focus on the perception of gender identity and on sexual practices.
