Research Area

The goal of my project is to characterize the properties of Ca2+ channels in presynaptic terminals of GABAergic interneurons, especially fast spiking, parvalbumin-expressing GABAergic interneurons. I will study the gating properties and density of these channels by cutting edge subcellular patch-clamp recordings, and further localize these channels by freeze fracture replica labeling in collaboration with Ryuichi Shigemoto’s group.
