Long term objectives

  • Delineate mechanisms by which astrocytes respond to neuronal activity
  • Decipher astrocytic encoding and processing of signals obtained from its external milieu
  • Reveal mechanisms by which astrocytes influence neuronal and vascular function
  • Determine roles of astrocytes in normal behavior, cognition and learning
  • Unravel mechanisms underlying perturbed neuron-glia circuit function in neurological diseases and use this knowledge to develop strategies for new diagnostics, improved recovery and cure.
