Scientific summary

Neuron/glia signaling in health and disease

The mammalian brain consists of comparable number of neurons and glial cells. My study is to understand how neurons and glial cells co-operate to regulate the function and health of the brain. I study the signaling mechanism in neuron and glial cells, ranging from second messenger dynamics (e.g., Ca2+, cAMP), transmitter release, to vesicle/receptor trafficking. Not only will it provide integrative knowledge on neurophysiology, but also help to identify dysregulations in neuron/glia actions in neurological diseases. A multidisciplinary approach is employed, including optical imaging, genetic engineering, pharmaco-/optogenetics, and electrophysiology.
