"Neuroimmune Interactions Shaping Social Behavior"

Gloria B. Choi, Ph.D.
Picower Institute for Learning and Memory Investigator
MIT Associate Professor


Gloria Choi studies the interaction of the immune system with the brain and the effects of that interaction on neurodevelopment, behavior and mood. She also studies how social behaviors are regulated according to sensory stimuli, context, internal state, and physiological status, and how these factors modulate neural circuit function via a combinatorial code of classic neuromodulators and immune-derived cytokines, as part of the Progress in Neuroscience Seminar (PINS) series.
