Research

Research Summary: 

Our research goal is to understand how synapses develop into functional circuits. Synaptic connections undergo constant fine-tuning to support information delivery and storage in the brain. Regulation of these connections can occur throuh altering the strength of existing synapses or through synapse assembly and disassembly. We utilize genetic, biochemical, imaging, and electrophysiological techniques to connect cell biology of the neuron to animal behavior.
