Thesis: “Transmission properties of individual excitatory synapses
at CA1 pyramidal cells”. 1995
Research Area: Neuroscience
ResearchMy main research interest is neuronal excitability control; particularly how neuronal structure influence the properties and vulnerabilities of neurons. The goal is to find how neurons, and particularly their axons, cope with physical or pathological challenges, how damage may occur, and how that damage may be prevented.
