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
