Neural Excitability, Synapses, and Glia
It is the the neuronal excitability and synaptic connections that produce behavior and cognition. This research theme seeks a better understanding of these concepts on a cellular level by studying ion channels, G-protein receptors, synaptic transmission, neurotransmitters, action potential, synaptic transmission, plasticity and glia neuron interactions.
Disciplines, or concentrations within Neural Excitability, Synapses, and Glia include:
- Glial - Neuronal Interaction
- Ion channels
- Neuronal Growth and Differentiation
- Neuronal Markers
- Neural Plasticity
- Signal Processing
- Synaptic Plasticity
