Main Research Fields

With the background of clinical medicine and neurobiology, I am familiar with the neural mechanism of pain and pain modulation. We used the animal behavioral, immunohistochemical, electrophysiological as well as chemogenetics and optogenetics techniques to explore the mechanisms of chronic stress affects the sensory and emotional components of chronic neuropathic pain in rats.
