Neuroscience at the beach

 

We study molecular and circuit mechanisms of childhood brain disorders

 

We take a cross-disciplinary approach to study the neural circuit basis of epilepsy and related neurodevelopmental disorders. Our research goals are to discover how improper nervous system development causes epilepsy and to use this information to develop new therapies. We are part of the Department of Anatomy & Neurobiology at the University of California, Irvine. The lab also participates actively in the Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program, Epilepsy Research CenterCenter for Autism Research and TranslationStem Cell Research Center and the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory.
