Curiosity is the essence of our existence

Molecular and Systems Neuroscience Laboratory


Our lab aims to investigate the mechanisms of synaptic plasticity, and will continue to expand our research focus on how such mechanistic defects result in neurodevelopmental disorders, such as Rett syndrome and Fragile X syndrome, through the use of multidisciplinary approaches. The foundation of our research builds on bridging the gaps between disciplines, particularly in molecular and system neuroscience, and also the gap between neurobiological research and problems in human medicine. Our long-term goal is to apply multidisciplinary cutting-edge neurotechnology to probe brain function in health and disease.
