overview

Our long term research goals are to identify the cellular and molecular mechanisms responsible for age-related changes in cellular function that contribute to detrimental aging, and to develop targeted therapies to reverse age-related deficits. We utilize electrophyiological, optogenetic and calcium imaging techniques in animal models of aging and disease. Our research has focused on the basic idea that compensatory changes occur in in brain function during aging and identification of this brain activity will provide an important first step in identifying potential targets for future drug therapies.
