Our research concerns the roles of spontaneous electrical activity in the development of the nervous system. Experiments we are doing now ask how such activity is controlled and what roles it plays in nervous system development. We use patch clamp and calcium imaging methods on living slices of developing mouse brain to study these questions. The laboratory is small, with people at all levels (faculty from other universities on sabbatical visits, technicians, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduates; not all necessarily at the same time) working closely together.
