Synaptic biology and disease

Studying the molecular components of synaptic transmission that underlie cognition, learning and memory.

Investigating the basis of cognition, behaviour, learning and memory. A particular focus is on the synapse in health and disease: dissecting the molecular basis of multiprotein machine mechanisms at the synapse and exploring synaptic pharmacology.
