Clinical Interests

  • neurological disorders such as muscular dystrophy, spinal cord injury, and epilepsy.

Research Interests

  • The human brain contains billions of neurons to receive and integrate a host of electrical and biochemical signals. Efficiency in communication among neurons is made possible by synapses, contacts formed between two neurons. We are interested in mechanisms of synapse formation, neurotransmission, and synaptic plasticity. Our studies contribute to a better understanding of these processes and development of potential therapeutic strategies for mental disorders such as schizophrenia, autism, and depression and neurological disorders such as muscular dystrophy, spinal cord injury, and epilepsy.
