Mark A. Rossi, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry
Mark received his bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Michigan-Dearborn in 2009 and his doctorate in Psychology and Neuroscience from the systems and integrative neuroscience program at Duke University in 2015 in the lab of Henry Yin where he used in vivo electrophysiology and optogenetics to study how the basal ganglia regulate motivated behavior. He completed his postdoctoral training in neurobiology with Garret Stuber at the University of North Carolina and the University of Washington in 2021 where he used deep brain two-photon calcium imaging, slice electrophysiology, and single-cell sequencing to investigate how lateral hypothalamic circuits guide feeding and obesity.
