Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience

My research has contributed broadly to the understanding of presynaptic and postsynaptic regulation of neurotransmission in the hippocampus, retina, and other brain areas. We apply electrophysiological, molecular intervention, and imaging approaches to questions related to excitability and neurotransmission.  We combine several levels of experimental approaches including heterologous expression, reductionist microcultures of primary neurons and astrocytes, brain slices, and in vivo studies.
