Dr. Rea Mitelman is a postdoctoral fellow in the lab, in collaboration with Dr. Jiami Guo who held the Harley Hotchkiss – Samuel Weiss and the CONP Postdoctoral Fellowships. Rea did his PhD in computational neuroscience in the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC) in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem where he gained a strong computational background. He later did a first postdoctoral fellowship in Weizmann Institute of Science where he was trained in state-of-the-art genetic tools to manipulate neuronal activity.
His research these days focuses on the role of Cerebellar pathways in stress and social behaviours. His includes several aspects of these pathways. These include anatomical mapping of cerebellar outputs relevant to social and stress related behaviour, monitoring behavioral changes upon manipulating these pathways with opto- and chemo-genetic tools, as well as imaging their activity under these behaviours in behaving mice.
