Glutamate receptor expression, trafficking and turnover in synaptic plasticity

 

We are interested in the dynamic behavior of glutamate receptors, which mediate neuronal communication in the brain and serve as the molecular substrates for higher brain function (learning, memory, cognition) and dysfunction (neurotoxicity, neurodegeneration, drug addiction and psychiatric disorders).

 

In our research, we use cultured rat cortical / hippocampal neurons and brain slices and employ diverse techniques including biochemistry, immunofluorescence labeling, live imaging, molecular biology and electrophysiology methods.
