Research project

M.Sc student at prof. Inna Slutsky's lab. One of the functional parameters that is disrupted in several neurodegenerative and neurological diseases (e.g Alzheimer's disease, Epilepsy) is the mean firing rate of different neuronal networks. To better understand the possible failures, I'm studying the molecular mechanisms underlying neuronal firing rate homeostasis, using various methods including fluorescence microscopy and electrophysiological recordings.
