Research in our laboratory is directed at understanding the mechanisms of synaptic transmission and plasticity, and the role of glutamate receptors in brain function and pathology. We use a multidisciplinary approach including in vitro electrophysiological recording, cellular imaging, mouse behavior, and biochemical techniques. We ultimately seek to understand the link between synaptic dysfunction and neuropsychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders.
