We are intrested in finding out what are the molecular events that transform a normal brain into an epileptic one. This process of transformation, also known as epileptogenesis, involves a plethora of molecular, biochemical and structural changes.
We are looking out for the mechanisms underling epileptogenesis in order to find a target to prevent the appearance of epileptic seizures characteristic of epilepsy.
For our studies we use several techniques that include, but are not limited to:
- Western Blot
- Confocal Microscopy
- Stereotaxic Surgery
- Electrode Implantation
- EEG/Video Recordings
Our lab is currently accepting rotation students.
