I am interested in properties of synaptic transmission in the cerebral cortex, in particular the barrel cortex, and processes by which synaptic function can be modulated, by development, by sensory activity or by synaptic plasticity, and the molecular mechanisms and loci of such changes. I am also interested in neuronal morphology and relations between neuronal structure and function, and studying experimental models of neurological disorders (eg the DISC1 mouse) to determine how synaptic circuitry is compromised in the disorders.
