Dept of Pharmacology & Physiology
Preclinical Epilepsy, Pharmacology, and Behavioral Neuroscience Research
Research in the laboratory focuses on the neural circuitry underlying seizure propagation, complex behaviors, and the pharmacological treatment of neonatal seizures. We use a combination of approaches ranging from biochemistry and histology to neurophysiology (in slice and in intact animals) to behavioral monitoring and circuit manipulation (pharmacological, optogenetic, chemogenetic) to neuroimaging.
At Georgetown, we collaborate closely with Dr. Ludise Malkova, Dr. Prosper N'Gouemo and Dr. Stefano Vicini.
