Neurosciences

Our research covers nervous system regulation and function in health and disease, with a focus on synaptic function and neuronal circuitry. We use a wide range of technical and theoretical approaches to study normal brain function, uncover the fundamental causes of neurological and psychiatric diseases, and identify novel therapeutic targets. Our major themes are:

  • Neocortical and hippocampal microcircuitry
  • Presynaptic control of neurotransmitter release
  • Postsynaptic receptor identification and clustering mechanisms
  • Genetic and neurochemical basis of neurological disease
