Expertise

The major focus of my research centers around synaptic mechanisms of learning and memory. Specifically, to elucidate the regulation of glutamate receptor mediated synaptic transmission in animal models of diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy and diabetes, and the use of experimental drugs to ameliorate the synaptic dysfunction and associated neuro-behavioral deficits in these disease states.
