  • Membrane Biology Lab

    Membrane Biology Lab

    Membrane proteins play critical roles in the brain. The Membrane Biology Lab studies ATP-hydrolyzing enzymes that control sodium, potassium and calcium movements. Molecular, cellular and biochemical approaches are used to study structure, function and physiology. Mutations found in human diseases, such as dystonia, are being studied in mutant mice.

  • Neural Prosthetic Lab

    Neural Prosthetic Lab

    The Neural Prosthetic Lab seeks to improve the effectiveness of CNS-based neural prosthetics by understanding how and why neurons respond to electric stimulation. We use this knowledge to develop improved methods of stimulation. Projects focus on retinal prosthetics, DBS and other devices.
