I am a third year graduate student in Dr. Hee Jung Chung's lab.
Epilepsy, Neuronal Excitability, Homeostatic Plasticity
Our goals are to understand how epilepsy mutations affect ion channel function and lead to hyperexcitability in inherited or de novo epilepsy, and identify molecular mechanisms that alter ion channels to cause hyperexcitability in acquired epilepsy.
