Current project: Our research in focused on determining the role of NMDA receptors in network activity. In particular we are studying how NMDA receptor antagonism influences chemical induced oscillations.
Other interests: I am also interested in how the activity of specific channels can influence the overall activity of the neuronal network and how this network activity later influences behavior.
