Research Areas

    Diseases of the nervous system, ranging from epilepsy, stroke, and Alzheimer's disease, which affect millions, to rare ones such as Rett's Syndrome and Rasmussen's Encephalitis, have devastating consequences for individuals of all ages and represent increasing medical and socioeconomic problems. Although symptomatic treatments are available in some diseases, mechanism-based therapies to prevent or cure these diseases are lacking. The long-term Research Interests of our laboratory are to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms of neurological diseases, especially those relating to mental retardation and epilepsy.
