Our current research topics include central neuron mechanosensation and electrical signaling in health and disease. They are relevant to mild traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis and alcohol use disorder. We use molecular biology techniques, state-of-the-art imaging including two-color time lapse, FRET, confocal, transmission electron microscopy and cryo-electron tomography, patch-clamp recording, neuroanatomy, primary neuron culture and myelin coculture, conditional knockout mice, preclinical mouse models, behavioral testing, etc.
