Welcome to the Seal Lab

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.
