Our new home is the Department of Neuroscience @ the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL

Our lab is working towards understanding how brain cells communicate with each other to evoke different behaviors, in normal and pathological conditions. We are particularly interested in neural mechanisms altered by environmental factors such as stress, dietary habits and exercise. We are also interested in uncovering how these mechanisms can sometimes lead to unhealthy cognitive aging and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.

To tackle these important questions, we use animal models (rodents) and a combination of techniques including electrophysiology, behavioral analysis, viral genetic manipulation and pharmacology.

  1. I am thrilled to see research into connection between gut health ( or lack) and cognitive & neurological problems. No one in my area recognizes this – or knows how to treat. After a decade of searching. I would go anywhere to get some possible help. Cipro began my problems. Can you please point me to any clinician anywhere who might could help??
