My research focus is to identify early causative events that underlie cognitive deficits associated with ‘normal’ aging and Alzheimer’s disease. Using multidisciplinary approaches that combine systems genetics with innovative high resolution and high throughput membrane proteomics, viral-based gene transduction approaches, behavioral assays, in vitro brain slice electrophysiology and in vivo electrophysiological recordings in freely behaving mice, my research seeks to identify and understand how genetic factors and misregulated membrane proteins in the hippocampus of aging and AD mouse models alter hippocampal neuron excitability, functional connectivity of hippocampal neural networks, and memory.
