This basic research proposal in mice dissects the neural circuitry and receptors that underlie therapeutic vs side effects of the sleep medicines used to treat Veterans, using a state-of-the-art gene editing approach called clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR). The support of this CDA2 award would allow the applicant to be trained in in vivo reverse microdialysis and in vitro electrophysiology to allow him to comprehensively validate his genetic manipulations and di...
