Research interests

The Synaptic Mechanisms Laboratory investigates how individual synapses in the central nervous system function and how they are modulated. These processes ultimately control how information is carried through the brain. We use electrophysiological recording techniques, such as patch-clamping, combined with fluorescent cellular imaging techniques to probe the function of distinct synapses in neuronal circuits.
