Zinc and Calcium transport in neurons; mechanisms of neural degeneration in Alzheimer's disease and stroke; receptor-ligand interactions.
Functional and integrative properties of nonspiking neurons involved in the control of motor behavior.
Examining the development and function of the nervous system using the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.
Mathematical and computational models of individual neurons of the hippocampus to
understand how computation and synaptic modification occur in these cells.
We study how animals generate rhythmic motor patterns such as walking, swimming, and flying at all levels from individual neurons to neural networks to muscle response to movement.
The molecular and cellular basis of neuronal communication in the central nervous system.
How maternal adversity and early life stress affects neurobehavioural outcomes in the mother and offspring.
Structural and biomechanical analyses of the vestibular system of the inner ear to understand how it encodes natural head movements and sends that information to the central nervous system.
Quantification of the vestibular signals that are generated during natural behavior and how information about natural head movement is encoded in neural signals.
Investigating factors responsible for the determination of cell phenotypes and molecular pathways linked to reproductive and aggressive behaviors.
