Research Interest

We are interested in the role of non-neuronal cells in contributing to brain damage caused by drugs, disease and injury. We are also interested in the physiological and neurochemical roles played serotonin as determined through studies with a knockout mouse lacking brain serotonin (i.e., TPH2 knockout).

Disease/Disorder

traumatic brain injury, parkinson’s disease, depression and OCD

Species

Mice, brain tissue and bacteria.

Methods

Neurochemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, molecular biology, transgenic and knockout mouse models of CNS diseases
