General Interests:

My general interest is the regulation of neuronal electrophysiological activity at the cellular level. Presently, I am investigating mechanisms responsible for ischemic alteration in neuronal electrical activity in the isolated mammalian hippocampal slice preparation. I have a growing interest in using electrophysiological, pharmacological and biochemical techniques in exploring mechanisms of neurotoxicity.

Current Interests:

My current interest is the interactions of the endogenous inhibitory neuromodulator adenosine, the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate, and neuronal function during metabolic stress. At this time I am specifically interested in the role of adenosine in hypoxia and ischemia-induced depression of neuronal activity in the rat brain in vivo.
