Dr. Bamford

Dr. Bamford is a physician-scientist who treats children with movement disorders and uses electrophysiology, behavior, and optical techniques in the laboratory to determine how the basal ganglia encode normal motor learning and disturbance of movement. The basal ganglia represent a part of the brain that is involved in a number of critical neuropsychological diseases, including Parkinsonism, Huntington disease and drug dependence. He is examining the synaptic mechanisms that underlie these diseases and is evaluating pharmacological alternatives that will help improve treatment.
