We are interested in how neurons respond to external stimuli and induce changes in their neuronal properties that eventually lead to the encoding of the information in the neural circuit.
Join the Lab
We are continuously looking for passionate, highly motivated, ambitious and creative young scientists to be part of our team.
Active Research Projects
1. Signaling Scaffold for Synaptic Plasticity
2. Regulation of Calcium Homeostasis in Learning and Memory
Our goal is to understand mechanisms of neural plasticity essential for information processing and storage in the brain and their dysfunction in diseases such as autism, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and mental retardation.
Active Project: I
We are interested in understanding how signaling scaffolds in the postsynaptic compartment of neurons organize and orchestrate signaling events that lead to the expression of synaptic plasticity important for learning and memory.
Symposium on synaptic basis of neuron network dysfunction in brain disorders
Networks of signaling cascades message the activation of synaptic neurotransmitter receptors by regulating synaptic transmission and morphological changes in synapses. To warrant signaling specificity, these networks are coordinated by signaling…Read More
