Research Description:

My laboratory studies the mechanism and function of neuronal electrical signaling in health and disease. In particular, we focus on understanding ion channel regulation related to brain injuries, such as concussive brain injury, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and alcohol abuse. Currently, we are working on the following three projects:

1. Mechanosensitive ion channels and their roles in mild traumatic brain injury.

2. Activity-dependent myelination in the brain.

3. Regulation of voltage-gated ion channels in fast-spiking neurons.
