Our research addresses three major areas of the mammalian nervous system in health and disease:
♦ Somatosensory –
Neural circuits for touch and pain.
♦ Motor –
Striatal plasticity in Parkinson’s disease.
♦ Auditory –
Glutamate signaling by cochlear hair cells.
We investigate how neural circuits mediate physiology and behavior and use this information to develop new therapeutic strategies.
