Eric Teboul

I received my B.A in Psychology from The State University of New York, College at Geneseo in 2016, where I researched effects of developmental exposure to common household flame retardants on anxiety and motor control with Dr. Vincent Markowski. After graduating, I worked as a lab technician under Dr. Sarah Canetta and Dr. Eduardo Gallo at Columbia University & New York State Psychiatric Institute, where I investigated thalamocortical and prefrontal PV-interneuron dysconnectivity underlying schizophrenia-like behaviors, and D2 receptor function on ventral striatal cholinergic interneurons central to the "cholinergic pause" and pavlovian incentive motivation. As a PhD student in Dr. Jamie Maguire's lab, I focus on mechanisms of oscillation generation in the basolateral amygdala underlying anxiety and emotionally salient behaviors. To this end, my work utilizes contemporary tools and techniques for cell-type specific modulation and recording of network activity, including in vivo and ex vivo electrophysiology in combination with optogenetics and calcium imaging.
