Research and Scholarship

Research and Scholarship Interests

  • Glutamate is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. The family of glutamate receptors play a critical role in synaptic plasticity and learning and memory. We are interested in understanding the roles of glutamate receptors and in particular N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) and glutamate delta receptors in the central nervous system. The eventual goal is apply this undestanding to develop therpeuatics to treat severe neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders.
