Dr. Dulcis is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at UCSD. He is a faculty member of the Neurosciences graduate program and the Center for Circadian Biology at UCSD. He received his B.S. from University of Cagliari (Italy) double majoring in Physiology and Biology. While earning his Ph.D. from University of Arizona in Neuroscience, he illustrated the role of neurotransmitters in cardiac function of neurogenic invertebrate hearts. During his post-doctoral training in Neurobiology at UCSD, he discovered that neurotransmitters can be respecified by sensory stimuli, with matching respecification of postsynaptic receptor expression and associated changes in behavior (Nature, 2008; Science, 2013; Neuron, 2017).
