Ryan Patwell

About me:

I joined the lab of Dr. Grinevich as a post-doctoral researcher in the fall of 2021 after completing my PhD in Neuroscience. I am interested in understanding the reinforcing potential of central oxytocin signaling as it relates to both social and non-social rewards. To achieve this goal I will be using a variety of techniques including operant self-administration, optogenetics, and calcium imaging to characterize and manipulate the central oxytocin system in-vivo.

Ryan holds a B.Sc. in Biological Sciences and a PhD in Neuroscience. He currently works as a postdoc in our team.
