The Boston College project will utilize Designer Receptor Exclusively Activated by Designer Drug (DREADD) constructs. The neuronal alterations induced by the DREADD virus will allow for control of the activity of the specific circuits infected through subsequent drug delivery. This circuit-level modulation will occur during experiments designed to test how defined neuronal populations govern various aspects of social behavior.
