Research Summary

We are interested in neuronal calcium signaling in synapse-to-nucleus communication and in how neuronal activity-regulated gene expression leads to neuroprotection and other adaptive responses in the brain including memory formation. Based on studies of toxic extrasynaptic NMDA receptor signaling, we are developing broad-spectrum neuroprotectants.
