Overview

Our home is the Department of Biological Sciences @ Texas Tech University.

Our primary focus is to understand how brain cells communicate with each other via specialized junctions called synapses.

We use animal models (rodents) and a combination of techniques including electrophysiology, viral genetic manipulation, pharmacology, optogenetics and behavior.

Estamos en el Departamento de Ciencias Biologicas de la Universidad Texas Tech (TTU). Nuestro objectivo principal es entender como las neuronas se comunican a traves de “sinapsis” o uniones celulares altamente especializadas. Para esto usamos modelos animales y una combinacion de tecnicas, incluyendo electrofisiologia, manipulacion genetica usando virus, farmacologia, optogenetica y conducta.
