Area(s) of Expertise

The development, characterization and application of electroanalytical techniques to study real-time neurochemical fluctuations in systems ranging from single cells in culture to the brain of an awake, behaving animal. The ability to directly monitor these chemical messengers provides insight into the kinetics with which information is conveyed between neurons in response to environmental stimuli, the mechanisms that regulate these signals, and the behavioral implications of this neurochemistry.
