Research Overview

The complex functions of the brain neurons are computed by the coordinated action of specific sets of unique proteins called ion channels that work in isolation or as macromolecular assemblies. By conducting particular ion species, neuronal ion channels orchestrate the excitation and inhibition of different types of neurons to generate specific neuronal excitation patterns.


The central aim of our lab is to understand how different ion channel macromolecular complexes induce specific neuronal excitation patterns in normal brain physiology and the processes that alter the functions of these channels in neurobiological disease conditions.
